2017 ACE Conference Testimonials
“The ACE Conference draws a lot of board members and CEOs of ethanol plants and offers great networking opportunities. The smaller size of the conference lends itself to the development of business relationships across the industry.” Pam Miller, Siouxland Ethanol, LLC Board Chair and Director of Investor and Industry Relations
"The ACE Conference was excellently planned, topics built on each other and the breakout sessions were informative. It also kept moving along without dragging it out and covering the same subject over and over. The presentations were informative on topics key to our industry with speakers who are actually doing things to create opportunities in our industry.” Rob Davis, Board Chairman at ACE member ethanol plant, Cardinal Ethanol
“The ability to get to meet colleagues and suppliers from the industry and discuss issues in a more relaxed manner is probably what struck me most from attending your conference.” Jim Galvin, CEO and Director, Lakeview Energy
“ACE was the first time we have been able to connect directly with ethanol producers on a national level. That connection enables us to develop relationships, strategic supply agreements, and connect the dots in the supply chain. We also have been educated on the issues and struggles the ethanol industry has and will face. As a retailer, we stand willing and able to drive the industry forward.” Randy Gard, Executive Director of Bosselman Enterprises
"I appreciated the grassroots atmosphere and the non-commercialized nature of the presentations.” John Phillips, Senior Sales Manager, Kemin Industries
“The ACE guys and gals know how to throw a great party complete with knowledge, insight, recognition, ideas and comradery. Truly the smart people were in the room. I learned a lot!” Bob O’Connor, Owner, JETZ Convenience Center
