We’re honored to be able to offer their training and insights for such an affordable price,” NGFA President and CEO Mike Seyfert said. “Watching leaders, managers and personnel in the grain handling industry come together at CONVEY to represent their dedication to regulatory awareness and effective safety and health practices is incredibly rewarding each year.”
