Over the past several months, members of our ag practice have been attending and presenting at ag trade shows in the Northwest and Midwest. I find myself referring to the period between November and February as “convention season,” but I’d like to call it “conversation season.” It’s a busy time for me, but I always enjoy the time I get to spend with clients and friends in the industry and learn about what’s on your mind.
The world seems to be moving at a fast and furious pace, and ag is no exception. Change has always been a constant, but there seems to be an acceleration of change. And along with change, there’s also disruption. Recently there’ve been a lot of changes in tax law, trade, technology, weather patterns — if you can name it, you can say it’s changing. But we find that the things which never change are your commitment, your work ethic and your drive to meet the demand and changing needs of the world.
To help you meet the demands that change and disruption bring you, we’ve been working to grow and evolve our ag practice to better assist you in areas related to business transition, technology, finance and specialty tax services.
In September 2018, we started the Ag Conversations blog as a new communication tool to open the door for more conversation. Again, we invite you to join the conversation with your comments (a comment form is included with every blog post), stop and see us at trade shows or simply pick up the phone and call us.
To wrap up this post, I’ll leave you with this thought: One thing that isn’t changing is our commitment to your success. Here’s to a great 2019!
