Put February 23 on your calendars to be a part of the annual Clinton Chamber of Commerce Agribusiness Banquet.

 

Chamber Agribusiness Committee Chairperson, Janel Baum-Thomas indicates they have gone away from market discussions in the last few years. Last year they had Eric Snodgrass from the University of Illinois to talk about the weather and the year before that was a round-table discussion with local ag-professionals. 

 

This year Thomas says they are welcoming Matt Bennett from Bennett Consulting.

 

 

Bennett says this opportunity to speak close to home is something he is looking forward to. He indicates he'll be talking with attendees about navigating the challenges of 2019 and how to prepare a marketing plan. 

 

 

Again, the agribusiness banquet Saturday, February 23 at the Clinton Country Club with a social hour starting at 5 pm, dinner at 6 pm and Bennett to present at 7 pm. 

 

Tickets are free through the sponsors of the banquet. You can get free tickets during the WHOW Morning show by listening between 7 am and 8 am each morning leading up to the banquet.
