A Don't-Miss Webinar - May 17
A Unified Message on Ag Research Funding: The Impossible Dream?

Thursday, May 17 | 3 p.m. CST

Many organizations, societies and universities work hard every year to advocate for increased federal spending on food, agricultural and natural resources research. Research to address ever-growing societal challenges has been flat or in decline for years, while the United States has taken a backseat to China in total public ag research funding. Some have tried to bring diverse groups together to pursue a common voice and message.

Brian Meyer, director of college relations for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Iowa State University, will outline his involvement in some of these efforts, and the role in setting the stage for future communications.


Suzanne Steel, Ohio State University

Breakout Session Descriptions

A first-ever opportunity. The Association for Communication Excellence (ACE) in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Life and Human Sciences is joining forces with the 2018 Ag Media Summit (AMS), the largest annual gathering of crop and livestock media professionals in the United States.

ACE will partner for the first time in this joint meeting of the American Agricultural Editors’ Association, the Livestock Publications Council and the Connectiv Agri-Media Committee. With the addition of ACE, more than 850 media and communications professionals are expected to attend.

More about Ag Media Summit. The AMS provides excellent professional development opportunities with sessions on a wide range of communication issues. It also offers an ideal chance to promote your organization to working agricultural journalists from across the country.

This annual meeting brings together the agriculture’s top writers, editors, photographers, publishers and communication specialists. It begins with pre-meeting events, followed by three days of programming.

Be a part of the next AMS.
