ASA’s Young Executives division recently hosted its annual Spring Forum event in Kansas City, Mo. Nearly 100 young executives attended.

The Spring Forum featured a key networking opportunity for young executives, plus an informative two-day seminar on negotiating hosted by Mitch Harper of Mitch Harper & Associates.

Sioux Chief Chief Operations Officer Joe N. Ismert delivered the keynote address at the event’s welcome reception and dinner. Sioux Chief sponsored the Spring Forum. Attendees took a tour of Sioux Chief’s facilities in nearby Peculiar, Mo. Kansas University Athletic Director Sheahon Zenger also was a featured speaker.
