AEM also conducts its high-level Annual Conference for Member Companies and annual Ag Executive Forum, as well as High Performance Sales Colleges for manufacturing district managers. The association offers webinars and pre-recorded webcasts on a variety of current industry issues.

AEM seminars combine expert presentations, roundtable and panel discussions, case studies and question-and-answer sessions. Participants exchange ideas and information, and keep up to date on the latest developments, technologies and practices in their specific areas of professional responsibilities, especially as they relate to industry needs.

The sales college is led by well-known business leader, author and turnaround executive Ron Black.

AEM’s Annual Conference of Member Companies provides an opportunity for senior-level manufacturing industry executives to examine trends in the economy, global business, public policy, and leadership and management issues, among other topics. The 2013 edition will be held November 3-5, 2013 at the Waldorf Astoria & Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando, Florida.

The association’s senior-level Ag Executive Forum meets the specific business-planning needs of those in the agriculture industry. AEM partners with Farm Journal Media to host the event, which brings together agribusiness executives, elite growers and key dealers for candid discussion (no media allowed) of global and domestic trends. A very successful 2013 gathering was held January 28-29, 2013 in conjunction with AEM’s AG CONNECT Expo & Summit in Kansas City, Missouri.
