Register Now for the 2017 OWA Convention

oregon gardenThe Marion-Clackamas Chapter of Women for Ag invites you to join us at the 2017 Oregon Women for Agriculture Annual Convention: Cultivating Women Leaders, which will be held at the Oregon Garden Resort in Silverton February 16-18, 2017.

We are looking to help grow and develop OWA members as leaders in the agriculture industry by gaining knowledge from women in leadership positions, learning how to lead on social media and expanding our understanding of Oregon agriculture through two farm tours.

Speakers include American Agri-Women President Doris Mold, Grassland Oregon Co-founder, Partner and Director of Marketing Risa DeMasi, and Oregon Department of Agriculture Deputy Director Lisa Hanson. During an interactive social media panel, two pioneers in the Oregon agriculture blogging community, Darleen Sichley of Guernsey Dairy Mama and Brenda Frketich of Nutty Grass, will help inspire you to share your story with consumers in the digital world. Finally, we will visit two Marion-Clackamas Chapter members’ farm operations putting technology to use: Abiqua Acres, a dairy in the Silverton area and Northwest Transplants in Molalla. (See the convention schedule.)
