MINNEAPOLIS — The Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS) Leadership Conference will be June 14-15 in Portland, Ore., providing an opportunity to gain skills and knowledge that directly relate to being a leader on the job.

Attendees will hear from expert presenters on important industry topics supporting the theme of Building Leadership Excellence and have networking opportunities during the two-day event at the Holiday Inn Portland-Columbia Riverfront. 

This is the first in-person leadership conference for GEAPS since 2019, and it will cover:

  • On the Front Lines of Leadership 
  • Proactively Managing Conflict  
  • Leading Through Change

“After a couple of years of virtual events, I’m excited for this year’s leadership conference in the Pacific Northwest,” said Bob Klare of EDG, Inc., and a member of the GEAPS Board of Directors. “The ability to connect with GEAPS and industry leaders face to face is a highlight of the event for me, and as a board member, I am looking forward to thanking our industry suppliers for supporting the event by exhibiting at our table-top trade show.”

New this year, the GEAPS Leadership Conference also will include a supplier showcase, a smaller-scale opportunity for vendors to connect with customers and conference attendees in a more intimate tradeshow setting. 

Registration is $195 for GEAPS members and $295 for nonmembers. Register for the GEAPS Leadership Conference.
