The Livestock Publications Council has 2 workshops coming up for you editors or editor wanna-be’s. The first one is in Denver on May 18 and will focus on photography and pdf’s.
It’s not too early to think about the Agricultural Media Summit in Portland, OR, July 23 – 26. Not much on the website yet but it’ll be there soon.
The Livestock Publications Council just held Boot Camp Ver. 1.’05 in Lousville. Two of the attendees were new student members from Michigan State University, Sara Barker and Abby Jones.
In case you need some “fresh” ideas there’s a workshop just for you. The Livestock Publications Council is conducing their Fresh Ideas Workshop on October 26, Kansas City, MO. Here’s the details:
There is sure a lot going on in Kansas City in coming weeks. For example, besides the Boots, Barbeque & Business luncheon I just posted, there’s also the Livestock Publications Council, “A Royal Gala Awards Banquet. Make sure your fall plans include the Royal Gala in Kansas City coming up on October 21. This is the continuation of fundraising efforts to create the new Livestock Publications Heritage Center.
Lori Maude, Gelbvieh World, is the new president of the Livestock Publications Council. I got to interview her at the recent Ag Media Summit. Lori tells us about herself, LPC and what she sees as priorities for the coming year.
The overall winner in the Livestock Publications Council, Best of the Bunch photo contest was Kelly Toledo, Trailhead Designs, with this picture – “Running Horses.” I think you’ll be able to find all of the winners on their website soon. This was in the August issue of their “Actiongram.” You’ve got to be a member to get it but I just wanted to share a good photo!
So if you weren’t able to attend the Agricultural Media Summit you can still get the flavor of it by visiting the articles that I posted this past week. This is one of those opportunities to use an AgWired category archive. In this case you can visit this link – Ag Media Summit Archive – and you’ll pull up all 30+ articles I did from both the Agricultural Relations Council Meeting and the AMS.
