Awards Ceremony Underway

Chuck Zimmerman

There’s so many awards given out that I doubt we’ll be able to post them all and I’m not going to even try yet. But while the ceremony is going on I can bring you a few pictures.

The emcee for the awards tonight is Cyndi Young, Farm Director, Brownfield Network. She’s doing a great job as you would expect from a broadcast professional.

Lobbying NAMA Style

Chuck Zimmerman

One of the greatest benefits to attending a NAMA convention is networking with your peers. In between meetings, the trade show, meals or just about anytime, you’ll see agrimarketing professionals talking. This benefit alone makes attending the convention a must for anyone who’s serious about their profession.

Herb Guenther, Director of the Arizona Department of Water Resources, speaks with members of the Ag Relations Council at the organization’s Spring Fling meeting held April 19 at the Phoenix Hyatt Regency Civic Plaza. Guenther told the group about the challenges of balancing the water needs for consumer and industrial use with those of Arizona’s agricultural producers. He noted that through cooperation between state and local governments and farm water districts, accomodations are being made such that the needs of all are being met.
