"GEAPS is one of the few organizations where you have something in common with almost 100 percent of the membership. After a good meeting or convention, you return to work ’revved up’ for increasing safety, job performance and more."
"I joined GEAPS to network with the grain industry. I quickly learned that in addition to the great people, GEAPS offered some great training options. Add in the exchange of information and ideas at our chapter meetings, and my membership has been priceless."
"I know of no better source for continuing education opportunities within the grain industry. GEAPS provides education, training and knowledge for a fraction of what it would cost to develop in-house."
"GEAPS helps me stay on top of the newest and most innovative concepts for grain operations and grain safety."
"I enjoy and get the most out of networking with my peers at GEAPS chapter meetings and Exchanges. We can talk about everyday problems that we all have to deal with, and many of the benefits come from learning from other people’s mistakes. You learn what not to do, and you avoid making the same mistakes."
"Involvement in GEAPS provides employees with the opportunity to interact with grain industry pros from other companies. That interaction helps them learn skills that they need in order to grow professionally. I believe employee development is accelerated by active involvement in GEAPS, and it can be very useful to your company."
