Approximately 100 students from across the country attended the conference. The conference included business sessions, educational events, and an honors banquet. Two national officers from ULM were recognized for their service to the society.

In addition to the aforementioned activities, those in attendance had the opportunity to network and exchange ideas with peers from over 20 different institutions of higher education from across the United States.

"It was truly an honor to be able to take an outstanding group of young agriculturalists to an event in which they received the honor that they deserve for their phenomenal academic and professional achievements."

In attendance were, Dr. Jim Casey, outgoing DTA national treasurer, Zach Moore, ULM DTA chapter adviser, Tucker Ellington, DTA southern region vice-president, Cody Parker, agribusiness alumni and graduate assistant, and Doug Craig, national voting delegate.
