AMSA 2022 National SLC Conference

Kansas City | August 11 – 12

The AMSA 2022 National Student Leaders Connecting Conference (SLC) is coming
to the historic meat industry hub of Kansas City this summer!

We’re revamping SLC to provide you the opportunity to build your professional value and network in the meat industry. Join us August 11-12 to learn from our top meat industry leaders as we bring together the experiences and opportunities to kickstart your career.

2022 SLC experiences you will not want to miss include:

  • Touring at least four meat industry packaging, equipment, ingredient, processing and services companies in the KC area.
  • Actively engaging leaders from a variety of companies to understand their integral role in the meat industry.
  • Discussing and developing a better understanding of critical topics such as markets, sustainability measures and giving back.
  • Creating memories with the AMSA community and your network with fun evening activities.

… and it wouldn’t be a meat conference without indulging in some of the best meat Kansas City has to offer!


“SLC provides the opportunity to interact one-on-one with industry professionals, allowing us to learn about the personal experiences that led them into their current careers and roles within the meat industry, while expanding our network as we seek our own career paths.”

— Marcee Cooke, Texas Tech University
