Speakers & Instructors



Our Annual AG & AG Training Conference is outside the city of Grand Junction, CO, at Cameo Shooting and Education Complex. All around you will enjoy breath-taking views of Colorado’s Western Slope.

About Grand Junction

Grand Junction is the seat of Mesa County, situated in what is known as Grand Valley that boasts a mild and enjoyable climate. We expect clear skies and temperatures in the 50s and 60s for Conference.

The area is Colorado’s fruit growing region that is famous for its wineries, breweries, and distilleries, with farm-to-table restaurants and culinary experiences. It is also the home of the Colorado National Monument, a National Park with breath-taking views and magnificent hiking, camping, rafting, and biking trails.

Perfect for a girls’ trip or family getaway before or after Conference!
