For the love of agriculture
It is crazy to think that in just a short week, March will be upon us. This semester seems to be flying by, and with all the events to look forward to, I do not see it slowing down any time soon. Luckily, March brings with it ExplorACES, St. Patrick’s Day, and the Women Changing the Face of Agriculture conference.
For the second year in a row, the Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow chapter (ACT) will be working with the Women Changing the Face of Agriculture (WCFA) conference to promote extraordinary opportunities for women in the agriculture industry. This conference will be held at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Ill., on March 8.
I have been fortunate to serve as the team leader for this event, and work closely with many inspirational women responsible for making positive changes within agriculture. The ACT teams are spearheading design efforts for promotional materials for the event, along with writing profiles of women who will be attending the event. Working alongside the dedicated leaders in our ACT chapter and the motivated leaders in the WCFA has made me even more excited about the opportunities within this industry. These women remind me that each day holds possibility and that hard work, passion, and drive go a long way.
