Upcoming Extension Programs

November 28-29 | Ketuckiana Crop Production Seminar | French Lick Resort Hotel
Fall is in the air and that means the Ketuckiana Crop Production Seminar is right aro​und the corner. This year's program is once again outstanding and offers two days of education, networking and continuing education credits to maintain your professional certifications.
December 12-13 | Indiana CCA Conference | Indianapolis Marriott East
The Indiana CCA Conference is an excellent opportunity for earning continuing education units and networking with other CCAs. The two-day program is packed with presentations. There are four to five concurrent sessions each hour. Each day the morning sessions are repeated in the afternoon giving you plenty of opportunity to hear the talks of interest. The program features leaders from Indiana agriculture, as well as speakers from other parts of the country. The program is designed to allow CCAs to earn up to 16 CEUs during the two days.

January 10-11 | CCA Exam Prep Course | Beck Agricultural Center
The goal of this two-day workshop is to provide fundamental crop and pest management information that aligns with the Tri-State Performance Objectives. This information will serve as a baseline for the participants as they study/prepare for the CCA International and/or Local Board Exam(s). Supplemental study/reference materials will also be provided to help prepare for the exam(s).
