Montana’s Next Generation Conference, Shelby MT


Plan to Succeed in Succession
“A Conference for All Generations”

January 29 & 30 2016, Shelby MT

Planning for the Montana's Next Generation Conference has once again begun. The first meeting of the Committee was held in Shelby in late August. The dates are set for January 29 and 30, 2016 and the location will again be divided between the Civic Center and Shelby High School as in previous years.

A new twist has been added to the Succession portion of the Conference. A follow-up Workshop will be held February 13, 2016 for families who have attended one of Kevin Spafford's workshops in the last three years and wish to move forward in succession planning. The February 13th workshop will allow families to schedule a first meeting with an actual secession planner and have a preliminary meeting where they could meet and discuss their goals together.

There will be packets available at the Trade Show, Friday, January 29th, that can help families prepare for the first planning meeting. A simple short 7 minute DVD which can be shared with your family at home to get the thought process started and forms that list some of the details to help people think through where they are and where they want to be. None of those are necessary but would allow people to feel more prepared for the first meeting. The most important thing is just schedule it and get whatever family members you can to attend. It seems that the first step is always the hardest.

Saturday, January 30th will be the 36 breakout sessions geared towards beginning farmers and ranchers, succession planning, and advanced cropping and ranching. There should be good information for all who
