AgBiz Masters Regional Meetings
Participants can attend seven webinars during the program season to supplement the online learning modules. Due to COVID-19, we moved all meetings to a virtual platform. The AgBiz Masters virtual meeting dates for the 2020-21 season have been scheduled!
A kick off meeting (November) and two webinar workshops (January and March) are held each year to supplement the online learning and allow discussions and feedback among participants and facilitators. NEW for 2020: Two AgBiz Masters Connect sessions encourage networking among participants. A follow up Facebook Live event hosted on the AgBiz Masters Facebook participant page reviews case study information, answer questions, etc.
