18 in ’18!

Written by NAMA on Thursday, February 15, 2018 , 9:37 am

We’ve set a goal of 1800 NAMA members by the end of 2018 – 18 in ’18.

Keep up the good work! We are up 20 new members this month. Thanks for your hard work and keep recruiting! 

Our latest membership survey proves that word-of-mouth marketing is the best way to let people know about the great programming and networking opportunities in NAMA.

We challenge everyone in the organization to recruit a new member. Just have your recruit(s) list your name in the “Referred by” field on the registration page https://nama.org/NAMA.OrchardWeb/MemberRegistration/Register. We’ll draw names of “Referrers” each month for a special gift.

We’ll update this chart each month.

Faces of NAMA

Written by NAMA on Thursday, February 15, 2018 , 9:36 am

We caught up with NAMA members and asked them to share their best NAMA experiences. They also told us how NAMA has helped their careers and advanced their professional development.

Check out more of these quick, engaging videos on nama.org. Use them to help promote your chapter’s events—or just help spread the word about the benefits of NAMA membership to your agri-marketing colleagues.

Be sure to tag NAMA when you share!

“The number one reason people join NAMA is for the networking…I’ve had the opportunity to really form long-lasting relationships. If I need feedback at my day job, I’ll call one of my NAMA colleagues and just talk it through. You get such great insight.” – Amy Bradford, Corporate Relations Manager at GROWMARK and 2017-2018 NAMA President

MoKan NAMA Taste of KC Tour

Written by NAMA on Thursday, February 15, 2018 , 9:36 am


Savor, sip and share on NAMA’s flavor tour of Kansas City. The food and drink are sure to be on-par with the conversation and networking at The Roasterie and Rye. You’ll feel finer than a Prohibition-Era politician when you end the day with cocktails at Tom’s Town, a 1920’s-style Kansas City Speakeasy!

In the morning, your regularly scheduled caffeine buzz will get a jolt with a behind-the-scenes tour of The Roasterie factory. Attendees will learn secrets of brewing the best at-home coffee, and receive a complimentary Roasterie pub glass – not to mention a sample of The Roasterie’s
mouthwatering Nitro, Cold Brew or Iced Tea.

We’ll keep the fun moving and get back to the roots of agri-marketing with a delicious meal at Rye on the Plaza. After chowing down, attendees will get the chance to learn about Rye’s farm-to-table philosophy, as well as their partnerships with local farmers who provide the ingredients for top-tier American fare.

Then, bootleg the spirit of Kansas City Prohibition-Era Spirits at the beautiful art deco lounge of Tom’s Town Distilling Co., a local speakeasy that draws its roots from the infamously crooked politician, Tom Pendergast. Sip one of Tom’s Town’s award-winning craft cocktails after a tour of the distillery and barrel room. Because, as Tom Pendergast loved to say, “the people are thirsty.”

Register today so you can savor the aroma of the coffee business, share a farm-to-table meal and conversation, and flout prohibition with your NAMA friends and colleagues!

Cost for the tour is $75. 

Wednesday, April 11
9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
