Ways of Working


Kentuckiana Chapter Meeting – July 18, 2023 - In-Person and Virtual

Topic: Finance Program Case Study - Managing a Merger in the Farm Credit System

Free to attend, 1 Ways of Working PDU



In July 2022 Farm Credit Mid America and Farm Credit Midsouth announced their intent to merge. Mergers in the Farm Credit system are not common but are beginning to increase in number. Join us for a case study discussion on the merger project for these two associations. We will discuss the due-diligence and disclosure process, as well as merger integration work. We will also discuss program governance and how the work was organized and broken down, across a large program ecosystem.
