Hosted by Mississippi Land Bank, this year’s meeting marked the 33rd anniversary of the organization, which includes members from Farm Credit associations in Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. The annual meeting is an opportunity for members to participate in professional development and discuss challenges and solutions unique to their Farm Credit roles.

FCBPW officers for 2014 are Jessica Stanford of Mississippi Land Bank, Lisa Decker of Central Texas Farm Credit and Frances Kerr of AgTexas Farm Credit.

Approximately 120 members attended the meeting, where they were welcomed by Mississippi Land Bank CEO Gary Gaines and Board Chairman Abbott Myers. Informative presentations from Farm Credit Bank of Texas and Fidelity representatives and inspirational speaker Collins Tuohy highlighted the conference. Newana Evans of Southern AgCredit closed the program with a humorous look at meetings of the past.
