Annual Conference

2021 Conference Announcement

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 case numbers in our state, our board has decided to cancel the 2021 Arkansas Women in Agriculture Conference. While we’re saddened that we won’t be able to connect in person this year, we believe this is the best decision to ensure the health and safety of our members. Please continue to follow our social media pages for details about future events and virtual learning opportunities throughout the year. We look forward to seeing you in 2022!

2020 Virtual Conference

The Arkansas Women in Agriculture Virtual Conference happened live on August 6, 2020 at 10 am. Watch a recording of the conference below or on our Facebook page.

What Our Members Say

“I believe that AWIA gives women from all branches of Ag, the opportunity to come together and advocate for our state’s largest industry. I believe that agriculture is the backbone of our nation, and that women play a major role.”

– Abby Clay

“Agriculture is not just a man’s world anymore, although it was for a long time. There are plenty of women who work out in the fields, too. I feel responsible to grow the business end of our farm because my name is on the paperwork along with my husband’s, and I’m just as responsible to pay off our crop loan as he is. I lose sleep over things just like he does, and I hope for the biggest crop yield like he does.”

– Allison Gurley,

“The conference is a great way of learning new farm tools and management techniques along with networking and building valuable relationships with other landowners, farmers and ranchers throughout the state.”

– Monica Paskewitz,
2017-2019 AWIA President
