May Presidents Update

Greetings from the childhood home of Laura Ingells Wilder! I hope spring planting has been going well for your producers.

Your NAFB staff has had a busy few months since we last visited. In April, NAFB staff, along with other NAFB broadcasters attended the annual NAMA Convention in Kansas City. Staff was very busy talking with agricultural marketers about the NAFB Research, and there is excitement among agri-marketers about the research and what it means for upcoming media buys. If you have any questions about the research or how to go about using it at your shop, please call Mindy at the NAFB Office.    

February Presidents Update

Happy February! We are another month closer to planting season, a very important time for all of our members, viewers and listeners. The NAFB staff has been busy “planting” seeds with farmers, ranchers and agribusiness leaders in January. During National Cattlemen’s Business Association (NCBA) show the staff met with farmers and ranchers promoting all of you. They used the NAFB Planner to help farmers find a local NAFB Station and talked with agribusiness leaders about how NAFB Members and their stations can help promote their businesses!

January Presidents Update

Happy 2016! Here is to a profitable new year to you and your shops! The new year is going to be an exciting one for our organization. With the final wave of our research being completed to some new learning opportunities there should be something for everyone to take advantage of this year.

2015 Presidents Message

As we gather with friends and family and look back on the past year, I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your support, your friendship and your shared thoughts on NAFB this past year.  


2016 NAFB Presidents Update

I would like to thank everyone for attending NAFB Convention, and to all of our sponsors that make the convention possible. I hope you found the NAFB convention valuable to your career, and professional development. My goal for convention was to provide something for all three of our Membership Councils. We have had many compliments about the NAFB Exchange this year, and it will continue and even be expanded next year. I especially want to thank the NAFB staff for all of their hard work in helping me organize convention.
