The National Grain and Feed Association Introduces CONVEY17

Will focus annually on key regulatory compliance, safety and operational issues

The National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) introduces Convey 2017, a newly redesigned operations and regulatory compliance conference and trade show for the grain handling, processing, milling and feed industries.

CONVEY, a successor to the former Safety Conference, will focus annually on key regulatory compliance, safety and operational issues that are vital to facility managers and their key employees. A significant focus of CONVEY17 will be on the Trump administration’s regulatory philosophy and policy changes affecting the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and Environmental Protection Agency. Key operations issues affecting the industry and prudent safety practices to maintain safe and operationally efficient facility operations also will be addressed. Several breakout sessions, structured in a way that allows attendees to customize their experience around three tracks – Safety, Grain Quality, and Operations – also offer the opportunity to earn Continuing Education Credits through Kansas State University.

This year’s conference, to be conducted July 24-26 at the Westin Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center in Kansas City, Mo., also will include the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, as well as several sessions on specific OSHA regulations and interactive sessions covering inspections.

In addition to opportunities to engage with industry leaders about emergency preparedness, automation and employee retention, CONVEY17 also will cover best practices on how to comply with the most far-reaching law to hit the feed industry – the Food Safety Modernization Act.

CONVEY17 includes a 75-exhibitor trade show, which offers ample time to explore the latest product offerings and meet with colleagues. Registration for CONVEY17 is available online at
