The Renewable Fuels Association’s 18th Annual National Ethanol Conference was an overwhelming success. With over 1,100 attendees and two days filled with valuable, impactful ethanol expertise and plenty of networking opportunities, participant feedback was extremely positive. The conference began with a rousing rallying cry by RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen and concluded with a passionate speech by the Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack. The industry left the conference motivated and energized, rededicated to protecting and promoting the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS), diversifying and opening new markets, and continuing to create and sustain quality jobs. Ethanol has an important role to play in increasing America’s energy independence, strengthening our economy, and protecting our environment.
Iíve attended the NEC for years, as itís an invaluable opportunity for me and my company to connect with my colleagues and customers, all in one location. Based on the program content and the networking opportunities, we simply cannot afford to miss this conference.”
