Midsouth Chapter Event

Written by NAMA on Thursday, November 2, 2017 , 2:22 pm
As the slogan says, “Go west, young man”!  For us in November, that means Jonesboro, Arkansas.

The November program will be a special one, as it is designed to increase our presence and outreach to our folks across the river.  Terry Simmons & TJ Thompson, two of the newer MidSouth members, will host the chapter for this full-day summit.

The special guests this day are the faculty and students of the Arkansas State University College of Agriculture and Technology. The chapter hopes to make these students more aware of careers in the broader field of agriculture as well as cultivate the University’s interest in starting a Student NAMA chapter. At this meeting, students will have an opportunity to interact with professionals and learn about our roles in the industry.

Activities include:

  • 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. – openings and introductions from Ty Keller, A-State Innovate Director; Lesley Landry, President of the Mid-South NAMA Chapter; and Terry Simmons, of the AgWatch Network.
  • 11:00 a.m. – Feature presentation from Terry Simmons covering Jonesboro and Northeast Arkansas agriculture, careers in agriculture, and how ag media provides producers with a vital service.
  • 12:00 p.m. – Buffet Style Lunch, courtesy of Sue’s Kitchen in Jonesboro.  Door prize drawings to be held.
  • 1:00 p.m. – ASU Student /NAMA member mingling
  • 2 p.m. – NAMA members will gather at the AgWatch Studios for dessert and happy hour, along with a tour of the studio and an interactive discussion of the future of ag media and advertising. Members will have unlimited time for fellowship and refreshments after the discussion.
