During the 2017 Ag Media Summit we had the regular changing of the gavel for both the American Agricultural Editors Association as well as the Livestock Publications Council. I spoke with both of the new presidents for these organizations after their respective board meetings.
In this week’s program I start out with Julie Deering, new president of the AAEA. Julie talks about the recent unveiling of a new logo and website for AAEA which is an outcome of organizational strategic planning. She is pictured receiving the AAEA gavel from now past president Mike Wilson.
The new AAEA- The Ag Communicators Network website is now live!
Here you will find a new and improved, easy to use, platform responsive website that includes all you need to know about AAEA. We invite you to visit the site and familiarize yourself with our new menu items, social media links, partners, and more.
We will continue to update and review this new website. Historic information on ageditors.com can still be accessed for a limited time and will be downloaded and archived thereafter.
We hope you enjoy the new website and welcome all feedback and concerns.
Listen to the program to hear more from Julie about the coming year for AAEA.
After talking with Julie I share my conversation with Cindy Cunningham, new president of the LPC. Cindy says the “basis of the LPC is working to build professionalism and build networking and build relationships among ag communicators.”
Cindy says that a challenge moving forward is the changing way people are getting information and making sure members are able to communicate in ways their audience wants.
Listen for more about the outlook for the new year for LPC.
I hope you enjoy the program and thank you for listening!
