MoKan MeetingOn Tuesday, October 24, 19 MoKan members and guests gathered at the M&S Grill on the Country Club Plaza to network and to hear from Janet Braun, program coordinator for the CropLife Ambassador Network.

Braun talked about the mission of the network, which is to provide scientifically-based accurate information to the public regarding the safety and value of the American agricultural food production. The network places agricultural professionals in classrooms across the midwest to share positive messages about American agriculture.

“The network has a Midwest emphasis and currently has approximately 200 ambassadors, with 100 of those being active ambassadors,” said Braun. “We focus primarily on elementary and middle schools, grades three to six.”

Braun said the network has presentations ready and available; and with a small amount of training, ag professionals can make a 20-40 minute presentation with confidence.

CropLife Ambassador Network is looking to increase their Kansas City area activity and hopes to do that through the help of NAMA members. MoKan NAMA member Curt Blades, Successful Farming, currently serves as an ambassador and routinely makes presentations.

“It’s really a win-win situation because industry professionals are able to share knowledge while giving back to the industry and the students benefit and learn,” Braun said.
