The Indiana CCA Conference is an excellent opportunity for earning continuing education units and networking with other CCAs. The two-day program is packed with presentations. There are four to five concurrent sessions each hour. Each day the morning sessions are repeated in the afternoon giving you plenty of opportunity to hear the talks of interest. The program features leaders from Indiana agriculture as well as speakers from other parts of the country. The program is designed to allow CCAs to earn up to 16 CEUs during the two days.
