NAMA is Heading to Minneapolis

Written by NAMA on Thursday, July 12, 2018 , 12:39 pm

Cruise into Minneapolis for the 2018 NAMA Fall Conference. This late-in-the-year gathering of ag professionals has grown into a can’t-miss combo of educational sessions and unbeatable networking. Keep an eye out for the brochure – mailing soon. Or, check out the digital version right now!

Multi-Generational Workforce
For the first time in history there are four generations in the workplace and 52% of workers say they’re least likely to get along with someone from another generation. So, how do we make this work? Ryan Jenkins will teach you how to leverage the unique strengths and experiences of each generation to create a workforce that collaborates seamlessly. 

Above Average Content
You’ve practiced the best practices. But deep down, you may have this feeling your branded content is slightly better at best and copying competitors at worst. Noise competing with similar noise. What if we created more original, more inspired work? Jay Acunzo will show you how to create more differentiated content that grabs attention and drives bigger results despite all the noise. 

People Make the World Go Round
NAMA has built in ample opportunities to meet new people and reconnect throughout the Fall Conference. From the Welcome Reception after the Ag Tour to the offsite get-together hosted by broadhead., your dance card is full. The Professional Development Awards of Excellence will also be presented. Prepare to cheer.

It’s all happening this September! Mark your calendars and register today to Grow North with NAMA. Find out even more on the Fall Conference website. We hope to see you in Minneapolis!
