Lessons Learned at Ag Media Summit 2015

Jessica Telgmann, Senior in Agricultural Communications
  

What a week! I returned to Champaign LATE last night from the Ag Media Summit in Scottsdale, Arizona. The conference is not just for students, as professional ag communicators from throughout the U.S. also attend. Five students and two advisors from our Agriculture Communicators of Tomorrow chapter were able to make the 1,700+ mile trip. While in Scottsdale, we attended sessions presented by industry professionals on ways to ramp up our communication skills. It was incredible to watch students and professionals side by side as equals, learning new ideas, methods, and material. The conference also gave students time to meet and network with the professionals and make connections that will benefit them in the future. I truly enjoyed the experience to attend Ag Media Summit and want to thank the Illinois Agri-Women for helping fund our ACT chapter’s trip to this skill-enhancing conference.
