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. Consider submitting a research paper proposal (due Jan. 26).

Apply for a Development Fund Grant Grant

Would you like to explore a specific interest or educational opportunity? Apply for an ACE Development Fund grant. We will accept applications through Dec. 31. We are looking for projects with broad application so other ACE members can benefit from the professional development experience. Successful projects develop new knowledge and information in our discipline, apply concepts or technology in innovative ways, show teamwork, and reflect previous service to ACE.

Grants support individual or group professional improvement projects. See project examples and review application procedures. Proposals are due by Dec. 31.

Not sure how you would benefit from a Development Fund grant?  Hear from one of our project leaders and stay tuned for more information.
