There is less than a week to apply for the opportunity to showcase your bright ideas on stage at Exchange 2014 in Omaha, NE.

If you have a great concept or new product you want to share with your industry colleagues, apply to the 2014 Idea Exchange by filling out this form (PDF) by Sept. 30.

Both members and non-members are welcome to apply.

The Idea Exchange program was created to give grain operations professionals and suppliers a forum to share ideas and product information that can benefit the industry.

This is the Education Programming Committee’s way of showing its appreciation to those who have made a contribution in the past year.

This program is open to both members and non-members but separated by industry category.

If you work directly in grain industry operations, apply for "Why Don't They? ... I Did!," and if you are a grain industry supplier, apply for "What's New?"

For Associate members and industry suppliers: "What's New?"

Participants in the Idea Exchange will receive:

• Free three-day basic registration to the GEAPS Exchange

• Press coverage in In-Grain, on the GEAPS website and in industry publications

• "Why Don't They?...I Did!" participants receive $100

If you've got a good idea or a new product of interest to the industry, please complete and submit this form (PDF).

Applicants are urged to spell out what the innovation, product or service actually does, and how it is an improvement over existing technology or the current way of doing things.
