Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark, St. Louis, MO

NGFA’s Trading, Trade Rules and Arbitration Seminar is a biennial seminar that 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, everyone involved in contract execution should attend the seminar.

The NGFA Trading, Trade Rules and Arbitration Seminar uses extensive case studies to provide a working knowledge of trade and contracting principles and includes sessions on:

  • Trade rules application, including the grain, feed, barge, secondary rail freight and barge freight trade rules
  • An attorney-led panel discussion on the legal principles of commercial and producer contracting and trading
  • Laws and standards applicable to grain and feed transactions
  • A primer on NGFA Arbitration including avoiding disputes and use of arbitration when necessary

The NGFA trade rules govern all financial, mercantile and commercial transactions involving grain. They are dynamic and responsive to current business practices. And they are maintained solely by NGFA.

Register today to make sure you and those at your company involved in trade operations or responsible for merchandising grains learn how to apply the NGFA trade rules to minimize costly trade disputes and contract non-performance.
