2013 Galaxy IV "Same Stuff Different Day" Webinar Presented by NACAA

Wednesday, June 26, 2013
11 AM – 12 PM Eastern Time

Have you ever wondered what really went on at an Annual Meeting and Professional Improvement Conference or this year at the Galaxy IV Conference? Have you ever wondered exactly what do I get for attending these conferences? If you answered yes to either question or just want to make sure you’re getting the best bang for your trip, then this webinar is for you! Information will be shared about the Galaxy IV Conference, the registration process, and tips and tricks from seasoned attendees to help you get the most out of the conference.

The Pennsylvania Association of County Agricultural Agents and the NACAA Early Career Development Committee would like to extend an invitation and encourage you to attend the 2013 Galaxy IV Conference in Pittsburgh, PA this September. We are very excited about this year’s event and confident that the program offers opportunities for program sharing, motivational speakers, and meeting agents from across the U.S. Plus, the registration fee for any first timer with less than 10 years of experience is FREE!

The first step you need to take is getting registered. For someone new to AM/PIC or Galaxy, this can be somewhat of a daunting task. There is a very comprehensive schedule to navigate through and numerous decisions that need to be made on what to attend. Well, we’re here to help. The NACAA Early Career Development Committee is offering a free webinar that will hopefully make your decision to attend the Galaxy IV Conference and the registration process much easier.

An hour-long webinar will be held on Wednesday, June 26, 2013 at 11:00 am Eastern Time. We plan to highlight the benefits of attending the Galaxy IV Conference, what events and activities first timers and others can and should attend throughout the week, and, finally, we’ll take you through the steps of the registration process. This will be a live webinar, so if you have any questions, the presenters will be glad to help you out.
