Ladies of Madison County, join us for Annie’s Project in February!

 

Annie’s Project is a three-session intensive agri-business series for women with a passion for business and involvement, and a desire to increase knowledge and skills.

 

Conducted by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, the series helps empower women to manage information systems and to build local networks. Participants will also learn about resources available to them and will discuss topics of importance to their future in agribusiness.

 

Regional Extension Agent Theresa Jones will conduct the classes Thursday, Feb. 11, 18, and 25 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., at the Charles Stone Agriculture Center, 819 Cook Avenue in Huntsville.

 

“Sessions are on various agribusiness-related topics including: marketing, communications, business plans, financial records, insurance and more,” said Jones.

 

“The sessions are interactive and the ladies learn from each other as well as the Extension educator. By the end of the three-sessions, a strong work and support network is usually formed amongst the women attending,” Jones added.

 

Pre-registration is required. Interested participants may register online at http://goo.gl/9yMa7q. There is a $50 registration fee, which includes lunch, a leather notebook and support materials for all sessions. Enrollment is limited to 25 women, so register by Feb. 9.
