2021 IFCA Convention


The January 19-21, 2021 Convention is cancelled due to COVID 


“Our annual trade show has always been a well-attended, positive networking and educational experience for the members of the IFCA, and we are sad that we cannot proceed with planning and holding this important event” said Jean Payne, President of the IFCA.  “The reality is that large gatherings are still not permissible or advisable, and above all else, we respect the need to continue to protect the health of the essential workers in the ag input supply & service industry.” 

IFCA will hold a short virtual annual business meeting on January 20, 2021 to announce its Board of Director election results and scholarship recipients, and provide an industry update.  Throughout the winter IFCA plans to provide on-line educational opportunities for Certified Crop Advisors and industry members to keep them informed on timely agronomy, environment, and regulatory issues.  Watch for details later on the January 20, 2021 virtual annual meeting.  

The dates for the 2022 IFCA Winter Convention is January 18-20, 2022 at the Peoria Civic Center.
