Michigan Agri-Business Association remains education credit resource

Certified Crop Advisors and pesticide applicators will still be able to earn continuing education credits during this year’s virtual Michigan Agri-Business Association’s Winter Conference.

Michigan Agri-Business Association President Chuck Lippstreu tells Brownfield there will also be additional credit opportunities for people if they aren’t able to join their Zoom meeting live.

“For the sessions that provide RUP recertification credits, we’ll have some special events coming up in the next few weeks if you miss an RUP session and you want to get those credits.”

He says the four-day event will focus on the top issues and policy impacting agriculture as well as build off of the “can do spirit” seen throughout the pandemic.

“I think we’ll remain in a transition period for the next few months as folks get a COVID vaccine, but we’re also very hopeful we’re going to move through this emergency and get back to the ability to see one another.”

The Michigan Agri-Business Association’s Winter Conference takes place January 11-14 and will serve as a major resource this year for Michigan applicator credits with the cancelation of the Great Lakes Crop Summit.
