Get Ready for Ag Media Summit

Cindy Zimmerman

Yes, it was supposed to be held months ago. Yes, it’s virtual. And, yes, that is sad. But what’s great about Ag Media Summit is that a big part of it is professional development and there are plenty of excellent educational sessions on tap this year for the virtual event November 16-17.

Writing, photography, and video workshops are scheduled over the two days of the summit, with some very talented industry professionals, like Jamie Johansen with Honey Creek Media who will be on a panel about freelancing. She started her freelance career with us way back in 2012 and is the poster child for how to build a successful freelance career. Also, Chuck and I will be presenting a workshop on the benefits of Virtual Newsrooms for both companies and organizations, and reporters.

Make sure to catch the newsmaker session on Tuesday with post-election and policy insight from industry experts who are familiar names. Mary Kay Thatcher, senior manager, federal government and industry relations at Syngenta, hosts the panel of DC insiders Chandler Goule and Tara Smith, with a collective century of experience in ag policy issues. In this session, you will hear experts decipher the outcome of the election and what the first 100 days of the next Congress holds.

If you are missing everyone (who isn’t?) and want to take a walk down memory lane back to the days when we used to get together in person, we put together a highlight reel of photos from the past 15 years of Ag Media Summits. How many times are you in there?
