Dwight ArmstrongThe National Agri-Marketing Association bestowed its highest honor on W. Dwight Armstrong, Ph.D, during the Agri-Marketing Conference. Dwight is the CEO of the National FFA Organization.

During his remarks Dwight said, “You know, when you get this type of recognition, it’s not about you, it’s about the people you surround yourself with.” He said that as he thought about what it means to be involved in agricultural marketing today, two things came to mind.

First, for young people, he says they must fully understand the vision and the mission for the organization they work for, the products and services they offer, their customers and also their suppliers. In addition to all that you need to keep in mind the ultimate customer, the consumer. The second thing an agrimarketer today needs to demonstrate is that they are global while still being able to relate locally.
