A successful manager is required to master many aspects of their agricultural business. To help the next generation develop the necessary business and financial skills, Farm Credit East is currently seeking interested up-and-coming leaders to attend its virtual GenerationNext seminar series. Sessions begin January 19.

GenerationNext is optimal for those producers who will be the next generation operators of a farm or forestry business or for entrepreneurs starting their own business. The sessions cover a range of topics, including leadership and management, human resource development, financial management, production economics, marketing, risk management, and farm transfer and estate planning.

“The management skills in the GenerationNext program can be helpful regardless of your role in the operation,” said Chris Laughton, Farm Credit East Director of Knowledge Exchange. “Whether just entering into a management role or an experienced manager, participants will gain valuable insights necessary to be successful in today’s business environment.”
