Upcoming Events

​​Code Red Webinar. Thursday, August 27, 2015. 12:00 P.M. – 1:00 P.M. EDT. The Code Red tool developed by the Purdue Women in Agriculture Team is a must have for every family, business, and farm operation. The tool includes important information such as passwords, bank account information, rental agreements, insurance papers, power of attorney documents, and much more, in one easy location. After completing the Code Red plan, it will become the “go to” tool if something happens to a key member of the management team. We hope this tool will help farm families turn a code red situation into a code green so the business can continue to operate on a daily basis. To participate, register at https://goo.gl/f3gLFM. You will then receive a confirmation email with the link to participate in the webinar August 27. You will also receive a reminder 24 hours before the webinar begins.
