The Farm Financial Standards Council invites all students, instructors, and industry professionals to prepare posters for presentation during the Council’s 2024 Annual Conference, which will be held July 24 – 26 in Louisville, KY.  (Download full details here.)

Posters will be displayed the afternoon of July 24 and the morning of July 25. Students submitting posters will receive complimentary registration.

The Farm Financial Standards Council is dedicated to helping farmers by promoting uniform financial reporting and analysis in the ag industry. Its goal is to be the definitive resource for financial guidelines to benefit farmers.

In accordance with this mission, the Council is including Poster sessions for individuals interested in serving the agricultural industry in financial, management, or analytical roles. The Posters should address any issue that relates to:

• Increasing the adoption of uniform financial reporting and analysis;
• Improving the financial management of farms;
• Using financial records and analysis to improve marketing and trade of food, fiber, and energy production;
• Methods to improve education and training for people involved in the agricultural industry – this could include analysis of training projects like “Annie’s Project,” increased farmer use of FFSC Guidelines, or innovative University Extension projects;

•The importance of credit to agricultural production, any projects related to this topic broadly, or to ways that FFSC Guidelines can be used to improve credit markets and credit access for producers.

If students are doing an internship during the summer, and if they have employer approval, applied posters demonstrating how FFSC Guidelines are used in the company, or how they could be adopted, are also encouraged.
