FSPCA Preventive Controls for Animal Food
March 28–30, 2017
Country Inn & Suites
The Nebraska Grain and Feed Association is once again partnering with the Nebraska Department of Agriculture to offer our members a fantastic opportunity for training at an unbelievable fee. Take a look at the brochure linked below for details on this training opportunity.
If you are in an operation that needs this training, or if you want employees trained in this aspect of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), you should make every effort to attend this training course. Our registration fee is only $75 while others we have seen for the identical course material run more than $500. The $75 registration fee covers the course materials, FSPCA course certificate fee (a $50 investment), lunches, and light refreshments during the event.
This course was developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) and is the standardized curriculum recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements for a preventive controls qualified individual (PCQI) under the Food Safety Modernization Act.
Hotel accommodations and meals not listed above are your expense. A limited number of hotel rooms are available at a discounted rate. However, the cutoff date for the discounted rate is March 6, 2017. You can reserve a room at the hotel when you call (402) 476-5353 and ask for the FSPCA room block.
We don’t believe you can find a more economical source for this training. Download the registration brochure here.
Board Selects Kristi Block as Next Association Executive Vice President
Your association board of directors have selected Kristi Block as the next executive vice president to succeed Rich Sanne, who plans to retire in March 2017. Block joins NeGFA from First Five Nebraska where she has a broad range of experience in planning and promotion, membership recruitment and retention, writing, and collaboration.
Block grew up on a corn and soybean farm where her family also raised cattle. She has been involved in Nebraska agriculture her entire life. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Journalism from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and a Master of Business Administration degree from Midland University in Fremont, Neb.
“I am thrilled to have Kristi join our organization,” said John Meuret of J.E. Meuret Grain Company of Brunswick, Neb., president of NeGFA. “Kristi’s leadership experience and passion for agriculture are perfect to continue to lead the NeGFA.”
After Sanne informed the board in August 2016 of his intention to retire, the search for his replacement began. “From the beginning of this process, I expressed my desire for a smooth transition,” Sanne said. “I offer my sincere congratulations to Kristi and I look forward to working with her and the board to make sure this organization continues its strong commitment to our industry.” Sanne will leave the organization after serving the trades for 20 years.
