The deadline for early bird registrations for the 2012 Commodity Classic is tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 20.
Classic 2012 is set to be held March 1 – 3 at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, Tenn. NAWG policy committee meetings held in association with the convention will begin Wednesday, Feb. 29, and the Evening of Entertainment that caps off official Classic events is scheduled for the evening of Saturday, March 3.
Early-bird registration is available at a rate of $190 for grower-members, $290 for non-members, $145 for spouses and older teens, and $75 for children to age 15. After Jan. 20, rates will rise to $215 for grower-members, $315 for non-members and $165 for spouses and older teens.
As in past years, the $100 difference between member and non-member rates means a farmer who isn’t currently a member of a NAWG state association could join and register for the convention for about the same total cost.
NAWG encourages all individuals within the wheat chain to indicate their affiliation with NAWG on their registration forms.
Classic is the annual convention and trade show for NAWG, the National Corn Growers Association, the American Soybean Association and the National Sorghum Producers.
Attendees can expect to enjoy a wide variety of educational sessions, networking opportunities and a trade show displaying the newest technology and equipment.
Educational sessions will also help producers be better at what they do by demonstrating how policy and regulations will affect their bottom lines and how new technology and innovation can impact profitability and production.
More about the show, including outlines of the event’s agenda and housing possibilities, is available at www.commodityclassic.com.
