The FORUM for Ag Lending

The premier conference for Farm Credit Ag Lending professionals.

Ag lending is changing with lightning speed given external forces and organizational pressures. Which means the channels, practices and plans of action relied on to achieve lending distinction could likely benefit from a refresh. This is the optimal opportunity to catch your breath and connect.

Is your organization meeting the needs of today’s customer? Are your lending professionals distinguishing themselves in the market? Do you have the right mix of practices and processes to grow in these challenging times?

The FORUM for Ag Lending 2023 will propel lending success with the latest industry news and hot topics, forward-thinking lending approaches to agriculture, and professional development on today’s critical skills. The FORUM develops the experience and expertise of Farm Credit’s ag lenders, strengthening the growth of loan portfolios and the customer experience.

Join us at The FORUM for Ag Lending 2023 to develop the connections and capabilities needed in the today’s lending environment. Propel the lending success of your individuals and organization.
