Ag Communicators of Tomorrow
The National Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow is a collegiate-level organization dedicated to developing the next generation of agricultural leaders. Dr. Kelsey Hall is a professor at Utah State University and the Faculty Advisor for the Ag Communicators of Tomorrow. She said this organization is dedicated to helping those who’ll speak up for agriculture in the future…tap
“This is a student organization that helps them connect with scholarships, internships, mentoring, and professional development opportunities like the Agricultural Media Summit and the National Association of Farm Broadcasters Conference. It focuses on students who are studying agricultural communications or who are interested in agricultural communications at universities. Our membership consists of about 23 chapters in universities across the country.”
The National Ag Communicators of Tomorrow was established in 1970. Chapters are located in many different states, ranging from California to Georgia, Minnesota down through Florida, and many other locations across the country.
“We try to collaborate with organizations like the National Association of Farm Broadcasters and the Livestock Publications Council, as well as the Association of Communication Excellence, the Agricultural Communicators Network, the American Horse Publication, and we work with the Society of Environmental Journalists. We try to make connections for these students so that they’re getting to go to conferences, and they’re being exposed to internships, awards, and scholarships with these organizations so that they can be seeing what’s available in the future for them.”
