Written by NAMA on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 , 12:14 pm

The National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) announced that FLM+, a hybrid strategic consulting, marketing and communications company, is now a Sustaining Partner. The announcement comes as NAMA gets set for the 2017 Agri-Marketing Conference, April 26-28 in Dallas.

“A sustaining partner is the highest level of sponsorship within NAMA and we are thrilled that FLM+ and its leadership are demonstrating their support of our mission with this increased commitment,” said Jenny Pickett, NAMA CEO. “Sustaining partners provide critical support for all our annual events including the annual Agri-Marketing Conference, Boot Camp and Fall Conference. We thank FLM+ for their partnership at this level.”

NAMA Sustaining Partners receive all the sponsorship benefits of a Platinum Level Sponsor plus additional benefits including complimentary registrations at national events, use of the Strategic Partner logo in advertising and promotion, web banner advertising on the NAMA website, advertising on digital signage at the annual conference as well as logo and verbal recognition for all three national NAMA events.

“We specialize in agriculture and life and environmental sciences at FLM+, and NAMA’s work to support and enhance high levels of marketing excellence benefits all of us who work in this important industry,” said Rob McClelland, FLM+ president/CEO. “We have been supporters of NAMA from the very beginning and I’m confident that our rapid growth has been fueled in part by the connections

and knowledge we’ve gained from NAMA. That’s why we’re so pleased to expand our company’s relationship with the organization in all areas, especially in the education and encouragement of the young agri-marketers who are the future of our industry.”

Fund Created for Steve Fink and Family

Written by NAMA on Tuesday, April 4, 2017 , 2:30 pm

In March of 2016, long-time NAMA member Steve Fink had a brain seizure in the Indianapolis Airport returning from a business trip.

He was diagnosed with 2 brain tumors and for the past 12 months he and his family have been fighting hard through three surgeries and numerous setbacks to regain Steve’s health and their normal family life.

This fund is being set up by friends of Steve, Kathy, Matt and Ryan to help with all of the little (and sometimes big) expenses that come when dealing with a serious health issue.
