Looking to advance your skills in ag lending and credit?

Check out the August 10-12 WBA Agricultural Lending School!

This school was developed as an intermediate-level school. Case studies, in-class work, class discussions, and a farm visit are all elements of this school.

An optional pre-school workshop has been added on August 9, 2022. This optional workshop is geared towards those ag lenders and credit analysts who would like to strengthen their foundational knowledge of ag financial statements, the 6 C’s of Credit, and look at some initial ratios. The 3-day school curriculum is based on attendees having an intermediate-level knowledge of these topics. If you’d like a refresher or to reinforce your ag financial statement knowledge, sign up to attend this optional workshop during registration.
