Student Day at Exchange 2019

GEAPS welcomes students interested in careers in the grain industry to attend GEAPS Exchange! Student Day is Sunday, March 10. Full-time students receive a complimentary registration to the conference, including all education sessions and the admission to the Expo Hall.

This special program includes a session that outlines some of the career opportunities in the grain industry, including:

  • grain storage management
  • milling facility management
  • equipment and silo vending
  • facility control systems/I.T.
  • design/build engineering
  • fumigation/grain quality
  • transportation/logistics
  • safety management

This is a great opportunity to participate in roundtable discussions with current industry professionals. You will learn more about the industry and make connections to help prepare for your career.

You will also have access to the Expo to see the latest technology and products in the industry. You can network with a number of ag-related suppliers, and a free lunch is provided.

Student Day concludes with a networking event. Interact with other students, grain handling professionals and leaders in GEAPS – and have a good time. The social event will be held on Sunday evening at Fulton Alley, just one block away from the Hilton Riverside. This event is all free for students, as well as any faculty advisers who accompany them.
