ARKANSAS WOMEN IN AGRICULTURE INC
May 26, 2010

I first became aware of ARWIA in 2007. I am from Atlanta , GA and had moved to Carlisle, AR to marry a rice farmer. I had never been involved with agriculture before, infact I was down right ingorant about it! I need to learn fast! I attended an Annie's Project in Bebee AR in Jan. of 2008 anlong with my step-granddaughter(who was 16). What I learned was amasing and invaulable to me ! Marketing , estate planing, insurance needs, and the oppurtunity to network with other farm women. That March I attendtended my first Arkansas Women in Ag conference, and again learned so much in two days that I was inspired to join the board of directors and help spread the word about this wonderful organization!! I have seen women come to these programs and walk away empowred! What a great thing that is.
