October Midsouth NAMA Chapter Meeting

When: Thursday, October 23, 2014
Time: 4:00 and/or 5:00 p.m.
Where: Fogelman Executive Conference Center at University of Memphis, Amphitheater 219
Cost: $15


Have you seen the documentary FARMLAND? Chances are, if you work in agriculture, it was on your radar, even with its limited release in theaters this spring. As the second part of the fall series dedicated to advocating for agriculture, Midsouth NAMA is offering a unique chance to learn what led to the creation of the film followed by a viewing.

This is an opportunity to get together with other Midsouth agribusiness professionals to participate in an important discussion, so the Midsouth chapter is opening up this event to other ag associations and anyone who works in agriculture.

Here’s what they are asking you to do: invite other people! Forward this email, pick up the phone, send a text message, hire carrier pigeons, brush-up on your smoke signal skills…whatever it takes. As ag professionals, it is vital we understand current issues and know how to serve as ambassadors for our industry. The more people at the event, the better.

There will be time for networking with drinks and hors d’oeuvres between the 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. events. It will be a cash bar, no credit cards so stop by the ATM on the way!

Farmland: Behind the Scenes

Join the Midsouth Chapter at 4pm to hear from Randy Krotz, CEO of US Farmers & Ranchers Alliance, the organization whose generous support made the film FARMLAND possible. Randy will discuss the research and events that led to the creation of the film. He will share details related to the cinematic success, consumer reaction and the launch of the I Am FARMLAND campaign.


Farmland: Watch the Film

Join them at 5:00pm to view the
FARMLAND film – a must see film for ag professionals! The run-time for the film is 77 minutes.
