This year the theme of the National Association of Farm Broadcasting convention is “Our Rich Heritage, A Bridge to the Future.” Cindy, Jamie and I will be there and you can bet you’ll find photos and interviews right here.
So, let’s get started. Mark Oppold, RFD-TV, is the NAFB President-Elect and has worked hard putting this year’s convention together, along with the staff and committee members. We visited before heading to Kansas City to provide you with a preview of all that will be taking place. Mark talks about how the theme was arrived at. Like me, Mark has had a number of people in the organization that have had a big impact on his career. So the idea was to have a focus on that heritage while also acknowledging the newcomers who are moving into today’s agricultural communications jobs.
Of course, there will be a lot of the traditional convention activities like Trade Talk, various NAFB organizational meetings, the NAFB Foundation auction, professional improvement and entertainment. Get a full rundown on this year’s convention in our conversation.
