Ag Conference



You Are Invited... 

And just like that, harvest is winding down or close to it for most producers in the area. This year has certainly had its share of uncertainty, but as we move toward the end of 2020, there have also been a lot of bright spots in the local ag scene for which to be thankful this November. Harvest weather overall was very good, and the markets have made some good attempts to rally, and programs like CFAP and PPP have helped a lot of farm producers and small businesses. Despite any further surprises this year may have in store, that does not change the fact that you are already looking ahead to 2021. 

It is no different here at the bank, and to kick that process off, you should have received in October’s article a “Save the Date” for December 8th. With COVID concerns in the area beginning to resurface, this year we are partnering with the Nebraska Bankers Association to bring you a virtual conference which will replace the typical in-person conference Security Bank has hosted in the past several years.

On December 8th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., we will have available access for you to join the conference virtually from the comfort of your home, office, or smart phone. Dr. Dave Kohl and Eric Snodgrass (sometimes referred to as “Eric the Weather Guy”) will be tag-teaming in an engaging, thought provoking and entertaining environment. 

Those that have seen both presenters will know that both are a treat to listen to! We look forward to having you connect for a few hours that will be overflowing with information that can be useful as you look ahead to 2021!

This program is being offered at no cost to you other than investment of a few hours of your time. Please call any of our branches to RSVP!

Best Regards,
