ARC board member Daren Williams, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, is offering a full day of message development of media training.  “I have trained thousands of spokespeople including farmers and ranchers (beef and dairy cattle, pigs, and even chickens!), PhD experts in food safety, animal welfare, and sustainability, vets, chefs, dietitians, medical doctors, etc. to handle interviews on a wide variety of subjects from GMOs to hormones/antibiotics to minimally invasive surgery for colon cancer.  I will customize this training to fit whatever communications challenge you or your client may have. I can even do grassroots advocacy/social media training if needed,” said Williams, Senior Executive Director, Communications, NCBA.

AAEA Award-winning Photographer, Jim Patrico of DTN/The Progressive Farmer, is offering two opportunities to bid on a photography critique/evaluation of up to 10 photos.

Boelte-Hall is offering 100 AAEA Photography 2015 Calendars with your company logo custom printed on each calendar.  That’s a $1200 value and a great idea for employee gifts, sales rep gift or dealer gifts. Travel, jewelry and even whiskey are up for bid!
