Daren CoppockThe 2014 Agricultural Retailers Association Convention & Expo is underway in New Orleans. The President/CEO for ARA is Daren Coppock, pictured here with some of our younger attendees from FFA and AFA. Great to see them here!

Daren says attendance is at a record this year and judging by the crowd at the opening reception and today’s opening general session it’s a big one. The big keynote speakers include Mike Vande Logt, Winfield and Kenny Cordell, Pinnacle Ag Holdings. I’ll feature some of their remarks when I can. Daren also says that the networking opportunities with ag retailers and agribusinesses here at the convention is always one of the key reasons they love to attend.
