Fall Colors in the Smoky Mountains National ParkThe Southern Region Agriculture Business and Personnel Officers Conference is held each fall. It provides an excellent opportunity to network with and learn from our colleagues in the Southern Region. The informal setting and structure allows us to compare experiences and best practices at our institutions on a variety of topics. Discussion and brainstorming often result in new collaborative efforts. Rotating this business meeting throughout the Southern Region allows each institution an opportunity to host and share information about our state and institution.

The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture is excited to serve as the host for the 2015 conference. We are planning a conference that will feature gracious Southern hospitality, an informative meeting, and the very best of Mother Nature's fall colors. Fall in the Smoky Mountains is a spectacular show of color not to be missed. The marvelous colors of autumn in the Smoky Mountains are at their peak in the month of October.
