Fumigation Workshop Scheduled For March 25
The association has scheduled a fumigation certification/recertification workshop for Tuesday, March 25, 2014, to be held at the Holiday Inn Express in Hastings, Nebraska. This one-day program has been approved by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) for recertification in the 00 and 11 categories. You must attend the entire program in order to gain your recertification status.
Additionally, NDA will offer testing at the close of the program to those who wish to test for original certification. If you wish to take these tests at the close of the program, please let us know when you register so NDA personnel will have your test available for you at the program on March 25. If you want study materials, you may purchase these directly from the University of Nebraska by going online at http://pested.unl.edu/ or by calling (800) 627-7216.

Help Make Our New Directory Accurate
Work on the new grain and feed directory for Nebraska is in full swing. Because so many people rely on this resource for information about our trade, and because this resource was voted in our recent survey as one of the top five services of your association, you can help make this directory as accurate as possible. We previously mailed to every member a copy of your listing in the directory and asked you to make any needed changes. Many members have returned these listings. We appreciate this. If you have not updated your listing in the directory, there is still time. Please check your listing in the directory and let us know if changes to your listing are needed.
