New in 2021

As we welcome a new year with infinite opportunities to continue learning and growing.  As the pandemic still affects budgets and programs, we hope to help you focus and build on your partnerships.   As a part of your team, we are working to align our offerings with your organization’s goals.

We are driven to provide you with meaningful engagement.

One of NIOP’s newest efforts is to provide a members-only, bite-sized educational opportunity called Lunch and Learns.  These quarterly, 30-minute webinars are in partnership with The Jacobsen, a respected NIOP member company who is providing a “taste” of its products and services to NIOP members for free.

Our first team effort was held on January 26th at 12 pm – 12:30 EST. This lunch and learn drew more than 40 members.  Jacobsen Senior Analyst, John Cusick reviewed the demand placed on vegetable oils per the surge in forecasted biomass-based diesel expansion efforts and answered members questions well past the allotted 30-minute time frame.

Longtime industry member and NIOP leaders Claude Jones said the following about the first Lunch and Learn . . .

That was an excellent presentation.  I doubt many people understand the significance of LCFS legislation in California  on the veg oil industry.  This was a good way for education on the basics – it should lead to a lot more questions and a lot more research – if you are involved in sourcing oils for food products.  

 

The January 26thLunch and Learn was recorded and will be available for current NIOP members only soon.

 

In addition to the webinars, the Jacobsen is offering a 20% discount to NIOP members who want to expand their access beyond the NIOP quarterly lunch and learns (bite-sized webinars) and subscribe to one of the plans below.
