ACE Conference Brings the Intensity

Cindy Zimmerman

The 35th ACE annual conference was a success on many levels, rolling with the unexpected just like the industry.

As the conference got underway on Thursday and Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts was five minutes into his remarks, the fire alarm went off in the hotel requiring everyone to evacuate out the side door and down the steps. It turned into an exceptional group photo op for everyone with the governor and everything just proceeded as scheduled after that.

ACE CEO Brian Jennings says they were pleased to see attendance back up to pre-COVID levels and he was encouraged by the remarks he heard from EPA agricultural advisor Rod Snyder about year-round E15. “I believe EPA will move forward at some point this fall…with a rulemaking to allow these 8 or 9 Midwestern states to permanently sell E15,” said Jennings.
