Concurrent Session and Poster Proposals
Concurrent Session and Poster Presentation proposals are being solicited which highlight successful and innovative risk management education programming and its impacts. Abstract submission is encouraged from any public or private entity involved in risk management education for agricultural producers, regardless of whether the project was funded through a regional ERME Center.

Presentations should be geared toward educators (rather than producers) and should identify impacts achieved as a result of the educational efforts. Abstracts that include research as a major emphasis will not likely be considered for this conference.
