About the Conference

What is the ERME National Conference?

The Extension Risk Management Education National Conference brings together public and private sector educators, crop insurance agents, lenders, and other agricultural professionals. Our annual conference allows this diverse group to share ongoing and emerging successful risk management education efforts which target agricultural producers and their families.

Conference participants learn about what is working to help producers effectively manage the following types of risks associated with their agribusinesses:

  • Production
  • Marketing
  • Financial
  • Legal
  • Human Risk

The goal of this conference is to broaden risk management education programming for agricultural producers, to encourage new programming efforts, and to strengthen existing programs.

Background

Extension Risk Management Education held its inaugural National Conference in 2000 and has been hosting a conference annually since 2003.
