Commodity Classic Reception

Written by NAMA on Wednesday, March 7, 2012 , 3:33 pm

A tornado warning didn’t stop approximately 70 NAMA and AAEA members from enjoying a reception during Commodity Classic in Nashville last week. Storms blew through the area and forced convention-goers to either stay in the exhibit hall or be herded to another safe zone. After the all-clear signal, NAMA and AAEA members gathered for a joint reception. A big thanks goes to the Great Plains, Rocky Mountain and Midsouth Chapters and also to BASF for helping sponsor the reception. NAMA President Beth Burgy promoted the NAMA national conference April 18-20 in Kansas City and AAEA President Greg Horstmeier helped welcome the group and let everyone know about the May 10 Regional Workshop in Ankeny, Iowa.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of long time NAMA member and friend, Denny Eilers, Iowa Photo Farm, Inc.

A Cornbelt NAMA member since 1990, Denny has been the photographer for many NAMA Agri-Marketing Conferences and will be greatly missed.
