The FFSC meets annually to provide a forum on the application of the financial and management accounting standards and issues relevant to Agriculture. Producers, educators, consultants, accountants, government representatives and banking professionals participate in the program of our summer symposium, both as presenters and observers. The annual session also provides an excellent environment for networking with others that are involved in Ag Management. CPE credits are available for those attending.
Our 2012 meeting will be held July 31 through August 2 at Parke Hotel and Conference Center in Bloomington, Illinois.
