Registration is now open for the U.S. Grains Council’s (USGC) 19th International Marketing Conference and 62nd Annual Membership Meeting, scheduled to take place in Greenville, South Carolina, from Feb. 14 to 16, 2022.
While this year’s general sessions will be accessible in-person or virtually, Advisory Teams (A-Teams) will hold in-depth, in-person meetings in Greenville, offering the chance to provide recommendations for the Council’s work to develop markets, enable trade and improve lives.
“In keeping with my theme of Together in Trade, you will have an opportunity to visit and work directly with members of the Council’s staff from around the globe,” said Chad Willis, USGC chairman. “Our members’ direction will help us establish priorities in the coming year, including how the Council works to find and grow global markets.”
At the meeting, A-Teams will review the Council’s Unified Export Strategy (UES) and help set direction and priorities for the year ahead. Additionally, sectors will meet to discuss issues of importance specifically for corn, barley and sorghum, ethanol producers as well as agribusinesses and general farm organizations.
“I am proud of the work we continue to do for our members throughout the grains sector,” Willis said. “I am confident as we work together in trade, we will all leave this meeting with a renewed dedication to the Council’s mission.”
More about the meeting, including registration, is available here.
