LITTLE ROCK -- On March 12-13, women from across the state will come together for the Arkansas Women in Agriculture Conference and Tradeshow.
The Conference will be held at the Wyndham Riverfront Hotel, 2 Riverfront Drive, North Little Rock.
An exciting addition to this year’s meeting is the inclusion of keynote speaker Stephanie Buckley better known as The Park Wife, owner of The Women Bloggers.
Stephanie is a grower of vegetables, flowers, and community. She is the founder of Arkansas Women Bloggers (ARWB), a community of over 700 women designed to gather, grow, and connect bloggers/social media influencers in our state. She is also the content provider for Arkansas Farm Bureau’s Taste Arkansas blog.
We are excited to offer information on a variety of topics through our Traditional Conference Track including: food safety, professional development, estate planning, beekeeping, community gardening, agritourism, eminent domain, and invasive species. These presentations will feature experts in each of these areas from around the state.
Also this year the ARWIA conference is offering a full day social media training focused specifically on “telling your story” to build on the theme of our 2014 conference keynote topic featuring Dairy Carrie. The Women Bloggers/Arkansas Women Bloggers will present four sessions with Stephanie Buckley, The Park Wife, taking the lead being assisted by several of the best bloggers in Arkansas focusing on the following workshops: Cultivating Your Farm Online, Yes, You Need a Blog; Building a Facebook Farm Page; Starting with Twitter; Picture Yourself Using Instagram.
Vendors will be on hand to answer questions and provide information from the Arkansas Agriculture Department, the National Ag Law Center, Farm Credit, as well as many others.
