June 8-9 Ag Teacher Workshop - MacombMonday, April 24, 2017
*Sent to All Teachers
Just a little reminder that the 2017 WIU Illinois Cooperative Council Youth Conference will be held June 8-9, 2017 in Macomb at WIU. Registration deadline is April 28, 2017.
The District 3 FCAE Teacher Summer Workshop will be held in conjunction with this student workshop. You can click here to see the schedule. Click here to register as a teacher. You can attend the conference even if you are not bringing students along. Contact me for teacher workshop questions.
Interested student applicants should complete the registration form at: http://illinois.coop/youth-conference/2017-youth-conference-registration-form/
Students should also send a $30 registration deposit, refundable upon attendance, to Karen Jones, ICC Treasurer, GROWMARK, 1701 Towanda Avenue, Bloomington, IL 61701.
The conference, co-sponsored by the Illinois Cooperative Council, Illinois Institute for Rural Affairs, and WIU’s School of Agriculture, returns to Macomb in a rotation between WIU and Southern Illinois University, Carbondale.
The conference provides high school students an exciting yet educational opportunity to learn about the cooperative business model. They will learn about the unique principles and benefits of a cooperative, as well as governance and operation. Students take a field trip to see several local cooperatives in action and have the campus experience of staying in the dorms, eating in the dining hall, and relaxing at the rec center.
Please encourage your students to take advantage of this great opportunity!
