Oklahoma's Statewide Women in Agriculture and Small Business Conference is set for Aug. 8-9 at the Moore-Norman Technology Center.

“The focus of the two-day conference is to assist women and producers to successfully manage risk for their agricultural enterprises or small businesses,” said Damona Doye, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension farm management specialist.

Cost is $50 per participant if registered by Aug. 1 and $60 thereafter. Registration includes two breakfasts, two lunches, refreshment breaks, conference materials, post-conference training and a Taste of Oklahoma reception Aug. 8.

Registration forms and more information are available at, or by calling the OSU department of agricultural economics at 744-9826.

The event is at the Moore-Norman Technology Center campus at 13301 S Pennsylvania Ave.

Sessions will focus on agriculture, alternative enterprises and business and finance.

“The conference is a great resource to learn the latest information on topics that empower women to solve issues and concerns of importance to them, their families and communities,” Doye said. “A particular strength of the conference is the ability of participants to personalize their experience.”
