First NCBA Communications Workshop

Chuck Zimmerman

Hello from Nashville and the Cattle Industry Convention. Cindy and I had a very uneventful trip today and got some exercise finding our room. I don’t know about you but the Opryland Gaylord is not the easiest place to find rooms.

I’m attending the first ever NCBA Communications Workshop. This is a group made up of the communications staff at the various state organizations. We were welcomed by NCBA President-Elect, J.D. Alexander.

We’ve got both “experienced” and new to professional life attendees here. The program ranges from updates on different NCBA activities to social media (surprised?).

I’ll be conducting a workshop on using smartphones and mobile apps and have my bag full of goodies for show and tell time. We’re going to look at using your phone to record audio/video and take photos as well as manage and update social networking channels.

Don’t forget to follow along on Twitter using the #CIC12 hashtag.

And I’ve got a photo set started: 2012 Cattle Industry Convention Photo Album
