Economic conditions, rising fuel costs, tax changes, and changing consumer trends all have a huge impact on the financial management of poultry and egg companies. The 2012 Financial Management Seminar will address these key issues, as well as analyze the industry’s current and future financial challenges. Sponsored by U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, the seminar for financial management professionals is scheduled for June 25 -27, 2012, at the Sonesta Resort (formerly Crowne Plaza) in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
“The current economic environment has made financial management increasingly complex. Financial managers cannot react to today’s challenges with yesterday’s knowledge. It is important that management remains current on best practices and methods to stay abreast of the ever-changing financial management responsibility,” remarked Program Chairman, Steve Jurek, GNP Company.
“We are looking forward to hearing Donnie Smith, CEO and President of Tyson Foods Inc., provide his perspective on effective financial management in these volatile times for our industry,” commented John Starkey, President of USPOULTRY.
Other topics on the program include Effective Time Management / Team Member Engagement; Global Poultry Trends; A Washington Update for the Poultry Industry; An Analyst’s Perspective of the Poultry Industry; Export Markets Update; Enterprise Risk Management; a Regulatory Update, an Economic Forecast, and a series of small group breakout sessions.
