Unite and Ignite is the theme for this year’ 26th annual American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) Conference that will take place in Des Moines, Iowa August 26-28, 2013. ACE Executive Vice President Brian Jennings says the theme of “Unite and Ignite,” points to the critical topics and timely opportunities that will be covered.
“Our upcoming conference will be helpful to those in the industry who are looking at new ways to overcome Big Oil’s stalling tactics with respect to blending our affordable and clean fuel ethanol with their gasoline,” said Jennings. “General session topics focusing on opportunities with RINS, RFS pathways to innovation, how ethanol producers can improve their carbon reduction scores and others will help provide ethanol plant managers and board members with a good game plan on how to bolster their marketplace efforts going forward.”
Breakout sessions at the event include: Overview of State and EPA Ethanol Air Enforcement Activities; Iowa vs. Brazil: Outlook for Advanced Biofuel RINs; The Impact Employees Have on Your Plant’s Success; Roles & Relationships: Building and Maintaining Constructive Relationships Among Board Members, Management and Investors; and Building Your Board: Election Management.
“I’m looking forward to discussing these topics and more with ethanol industry leaders next month. And I can’t think of a better location to do that than Des Moines,” said Jennings.
