2019 Trade Rules and Arbitration Seminar

May 6 - 7, 2019 | Hilton St. Louis Airport | St. Louis, MO

Offered only once every other year, NGFA's Seminar on Trading, Trade Rules and Arbitration provides attendees with a primer on contracting principles and trading practices to minimize costly trade disputes and contract non-performance. Designed for those involved in trading operations or responsible for merchandising grains, feed and feed ingredients, the program uses extensive case studies and includes sessions on:

  • Trade rules application

  • Commercial and producer contracting

  • Laws and standards applicable to grain and feed transactions

  • Avoiding disputes and use of arbitration when necessary

In addition to obtaining a working knowledge of trade and contracting matters, and extensive course materials for future reference, participants conclude the seminar with a competency test.
