CONVEY’22 to feature regulatory compliance, grain safety and ops training

(Posted on 01/07/22)

The National Grain and Feed Association in the USA (NGFA) is partnering with the Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS) and Grain Journal to present CONVEY’22, a unique opportunity for grain handling employees and leaders to gain practical knowledge and training on real-world compliance issues, best practices and emerging industry trends.

The NGFA, established in 1896, consists of grain, feed, processing, exporting and other grain-related companies that operate more than 8,000 facilities handling U.S. grains and oilseeds.

CONVEY’22 includes a trade show and 1.5 days of sessions on July 26-27 at the Omaha Hilton in Omaha, Neb.

“Each session at CONVEY’22 features knowledgeable and experienced experts representing companies known for their first-class services and best practices. 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.”

In addition to sessions on U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) inspections, operations best practices, and grain quality management, the conference offers training focused on behavioral safety and incident management as well as safe driver training and development.

Sessions include:
