July 12th Webinar - "Using Technology To Reach A Changing Clientle"

Below is the announcement of one of the programs the NACAA Ag Issues and Public Relations Committee will host this year. Thanks to some guidance from the National Board and our own internal discussions, one issue we would like to help our colleagues gain insight is "How does one reach a growing clientele base that does not read a newsletter?"

Please extend with me a special thanks to Dr. Bill Burdine, Mississippi State and Southern Region Vice Chair of the Ag Issues and Public Relations Committee, for arranging Dr. Catchot to spend some time with us. Details of the event are below:

Meeting Name: Dr. Cachot - Using Technology To Reach A Changing Clientle
Summary: Dr. Angus Catchot, Extension Entomologist, uses Blogs, Podcasts and Twitter to educate his Tech-Savvy following. Join us to see how he gets 8-10k hits/month from around the world. If social media is accepted by Mississippi producers, it can work for anyone anywhere.
Invited By: Bekah Sparks (
When: 07/12/2013 12:00 PM - 1:45 PM
Time Zone: (GMT-06:00) Central Time (US and Canada)
