The National Association of Farm Broadcasting (NAFB) has joined the 2020 virtual meeting club. The 2020 NAFB Convention, scheduled for November 18-20 will now held virtually.
“We know the importance of our annual Convention to both our members as well as exhibitors and participants in Trade Talk – it provides opportunities to conduct business and to network with industry colleagues,” said 2020 NAFB President Rita Frazer, RFD Radio Network, Bloomington, Illinois. “However, with COVID-19 spikes and various unknown health factors throughout our country, the board has decided to transition the 2020 NAFB Convention to a virtual event to ensure the safety and health of all participants. In the spirit of this annual event, the NAFB team will work to provide a valuable virtual experience from their own homes or offices.”
The NAFB board and staff members currently are working to transition this year’s Convention to its virtual representation. Additional information on the virtual set-up and registration for both Convention registrants and Trade Talk exhibitors will be announced no later than Tuesday, September 1, 2020.
“This year’s Convention will offer many of the components our members have come to expect from their annual November trip to Kansas City: professional-development sessions, the all-member meeting, Trade Talk, and other popular components of this showcase event,” said NAFB Executive Director Tom Brand. “We appreciate input from members and the support of sponsors as we adapt to the fast-changing professional landscape during the current global pandemic.”
