Professional Development Conference for Entrepreneurs (PDCE) Offered by Midwest ARPAS Chapter

The time is almost here! After nearly two years of planning and preparation, the Midwest ARPAS chapter is set to kick off the inaugural Professional Development Conference for Entrepreneurs (PDCE). 

This conference will be held on the afternoon of September 19th, half a day prior to the Minnesota Nutrition Conference, at the same location (City Center Hotel in Mankato).  

Sounds like a conference for someone else, right? Actually, this conference was designed with YOU in mind. Conference content is packed full of behavioral, emotional intelligence, and relationship skills that will be presented by people from agricultural backgrounds with practical scenarios that YOU face on a daily basis. Plus, you can brush up on your ruminant and or non-ruminant technical skills by staying a few more days for the Minnesota Nutrition Conference (additional registration is required).  

Registration for the PDCE is $40 for ARPAS members or $50 for non-ARPAS members with a $10 fee if registering on-site at the PDCE.  Save the $10 by registering online at  

Professional Development Conference attendees can earn 4 CEUs. Graduate students can attend free if they register and sign up to take the ARPAS exam at either the Professional Development Conference or Minnesota Nutrition Conference.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
