*See Full Schedule Below*
The 2015 Winter Wheat Conference will run from January 28-31 in Washington, D.C., and will feature an array of committee meetings and policy discussions by the leadership and members of the National Association of Wheat Growers and the U.S. Wheat Associates. This season’s conference will also feature a musical performance by Brent Blankenship, First Vice President to NAWG, who, in addition to wheat farming is also an accomplished composer and piano virtuoso. Wheat leaders and industry partners from around the country are encouraged to attend our Winter Conference to help strengthen the “grain chain” and set the tone for a new year of progress with fellow grower-leaders.
