ams16-104Scarlett has worn many hats throughout her leadership in LPC. She let me pick her brain while at AMS to learn a bit more about the role LPC plays in agriculture communications throughout the country and how she plans to help implement the Council’s three-year strategic plan.

“My year will be spent putting legs under our strategic plan to start accomplishing some of the other goals, like implementing new programs to benefit our members and ways to make their jobs easier with educational programs.”

One of those programs is called Coffee & Collaboration. It is an online type of webinar through Skype for business where members can reach out to each other and never leave their office. We all have busy schedules and this is just one example of how LPC is meeting the needs of its members right where they are.

“We also provide regional workshops throughout the year. Our website is also a great resource where you can find award applications and the code of ethics to use along with your publication if you get questions from customers. We want to be any kind of resource that helps our members do their job better.”
