IPSA Annual Conference Set for January in St. Louis

The 27th annual conference of the Independent Professional Seed Association (IPSA) is scheduled for Jan. 11-13, 2016, in St. Louis, Missouri.
“Each year, IPSA members rank the annual conference as the association’s highest priority activity, and each year the bar is set higher to make this conference an industry-leading event for our members and the entire seed industry,” says Terry Schultz IPSA president.
The 2016 conference features high profile speakers and workshops designed to help you build your business. It opens with a keynote from Commander Rorke T. Denver. Commander Denver has run every phase of training for the U.S. Navy SEALs and led special-forces missions in the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and other international hot spots. He starred in the hit film Act of Valor, which is based on true SEAL adventures. His New York Times bestseller, Damn Few: Making the Modern SEAL Warrior, takes you inside his personal story and the fascinating, demanding SEAL training program he now oversees. In his second book On Heroism: Why We Fight and Why We Fight as One, out April 2016, Rorke will tackle the questions that have emerged about America’s past decade at war-from what makes a hero to why we fight and what it does to us.
Other keynotes are from noted economist and futurist Dr. Jay Lehr, who has five decades of experience in agricultural economics, agronomy, environmental science and business administration.
IPSA is returning to the Hyatt at the Arch in St. Louis, the site of a very successful conference in 2012 and 2014.
