Agrimarketing : July August 2008
28 AgriMarketing ¦ July/August 2008 boat races have in common — other than you are likely to need a change of clothes? They are just a sample of the fun you are liable to get yourself into if you have the good fortune of attending the AMS. For those of you around for the first such meeting in Denver, CO, ten years ago, we have come a long way from milking cows in the pouring rain. The 2008 AMS is once again packed full of educational break-out sessions with a healthy dose of activi- ties designed to promote networking in a relaxed atmosphere. Sponsorship dollars are up, booth numbers for the InfoExpo are impressive and registrations thus far indicate we will have another great turnout this year. All of this means that not only will AMS be another great learning and networking expe- rience for those who attend, but also the revenue generated by the event will help keep LPC on the solid finan- cial foundation it currently sits on. While the AMS is the pinnacle of professional development opportu- nities for the year, LPC works year- round to help its members better themselves professionally. Throughout the fall and spring, LPC has hosted several educational workshops in places like Kentucky, Iowa, Idaho and Kansas City. Based on the attendance at each of these events, it is obvi- ous LPC mem- bers have embraced the concept and the committees have done a wonder- ful job making sure the work- shops have meaningful content. Another valuable information source for LPC members is our Web site. The new and improved LPC Web site (www.livestockpublications.com) has been up and running for several months now and is full of all kinds of information in an easy to navigate format. Plans for the LPC Heritage Cen- ter at the American Royal in Kansas City, MO, continue to remain on track. Phase one is complete and the Royal Gala held each October has quickly turned into one of the “can’t miss” events of the year. LPC has truly been busy this past year, and none of it would be possible if it weren’t for the truly dedicated members of this growing organiza- tion. I honestly believe LPC has some of the best and brightest in agricul- ture in its ranks, many of which I am honored to call friends. We are once again pleased to work with AAEA and ABM to bring you one of the industry’s leading events. Looking back, the first ten years of AMS have been memorable and I, for one, am excited to see what the next ten years hold.
