The 71st annual convention of the National Association of Farm Broadcasting is officially underway here in Kansas City with the theme “From Our Roots, Our Future Grows.”
Susan Littlefield of KZEN radio in Columbus, Nebraska is NAFB President-Elect and this year’s convention organizer. “We’ve got a variety of different speakers to hit everyone’s tastes,” said Susan, from new technology to farm policy to revitalizing rural communities. She’s also excited about the second NAFB 5K run on Friday morning. “This year the money goes to Children’s Hospital of Omaha to their GI clinic in honor of our youngest son Paul, who was a failure to thrive baby,” said Susan.
Susan says attendance at NAFB peaks at about 850 on Thursday for Trade Talk and “about 155-160 farm broadcasters here, doing what they do best.”
