MABA Convention 2021
As you all know – the challenges of holding events with the ever changing COVID situation is significant. The MABA/MGEA Annual Convention will look a little bit different this year. MABA and MGEA have decided to approach the annual join convention from different perspectives for 2021. MABA and MGEA will be holding separate and distinct events.
The MABA Board recognizes that the annual convention provides significant benefits to our membership for a multitude of reasons.
- GET YOUR POINTS – Both MT Department of Agriculture Points as well as Certified Crop Advisor Points
- NETWORKING – Providing individuals and companies the opportunity to interact and improve their business relationships.
To meet these two very important elements, the MABA Annual Event will be split into two phases:
PHASE 1: Continuing Education
Bi-monthly webinars on pertinent issues facing our industry. The first webinar series will be held on December 1. See below for program outline. MABA feels that providing educational opportunities to our members is very important and through partial financial assistance through the MT Department of Commerce we can offer the webinars FREE OF CHARGE!
PHASE 2: Summer Social/Golf Tournament
The culmination of the Great Montana Ag Rally 2021 will be a summer social and golf tournament held the midway through Summer 2021. There will be many opportunities for networking and relationship building. MABA will also hold an auction like what members are used to seeing at Convention. This event promises to be fun with golf tournament, excursions, and most likely a barn dance! More information on the Great American Ag Rally 2021 Summer Event will be provided as soon as it is available.
