It's time to register for the 2012 AgCareers.com Ag HR Roundtable! There is no better place to connect with human resource professionals and collegiate career services that have a passion for the agriculture and food industries.
AgCareers.com is pleased to be hosting the 10th Ag HR Roundtable, August 7 - 9, 2012 on the campus of Tyson Foods in Springdale, Arkansas. This event is a great educational opportunity, but participants also say the networking opportunities are priceless. Last year's conference was attended by a record of nearly 200 participants and we expect this year's conference to be even bigger!
