Speaker to appear at legacy planning workshop

First National Bank is sponsoring a free workshop this month featuring Jolene Brown, an eastern Iowa farmer and well-known blogger, author and advocate for agriculture.

Brown’s workshop, entitled “The Positives of Passing It On,” is described as an upbeat, interactive workshop taps into lessons from successful legacy business leaders and managers. Attendees will learn how to honor their family while building and transitioning their business to the next generation.

Brown’s mission is to help families build a legacy, using her experience and tools to grow, fix and transition their businesses. Her work is dedicated to grassroots farmers, growers and ranchers, as well as organizations, cooperatives and companies that support agriculture.

The workshop is from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Aug. 21 at Sleep Inn and Suites, 931 E. Kansas Plaza, Garden City. Registration begins at 9 a.m. A free lunch is included. Please RSVP by 5 p.m. Aug. 14 by calling Sarah at (620) 765-5220.
