Join us for Agvocacy 2.0: August 22 & 23 in Nashville

Learn tools of agvocacy trade!

It’s here! After much anticipation, the AgChat Foundation Agvocacy 2.0 Conference is back and ready to welcome a whole new crop of agvocates!

This year’s conference will be held August 22 and 23 in Nashville, Tennessee. We are excited to expand the conference by opening it up to 75 people who are passionate about agriculture and interested in learning how social media can be used to tell their stories. Whether you’re involved in production ag, hobby farming, agribusiness, Extension, commodity organizations, academia or another sector of the industry, we would love to have you join us for the Agvocacy 2.0 Conference!

Similar to last year, conference sessions will include both large and small group formats and cover social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, blogs, mobile devices/apps, smartphones and YouTube. This year, the planning committee is also planning more one-on-one chat sessions and networking in order to help you personalize your learning in a way that is most effective for your agvocacy strategy and situation. By building on the feedback and suggestions from the initial conference last August in Chicago, the AgChat Foundation is working hard to make this event even better than the last in order to keep empowering America’s farmers and ranchers to utilize social media as a way to share their agriculture stories.

Are you alumni of the first Agvocacy 2.0 Training? You can apply too! We will be accepting up to 25 returning attendees who provide names of first-time applicants they “endorse”. We think this is a great way to get a mixture of “pros” and “newbies” together to learn from each other, while also identifying those who are just starting out in their social media ventures.

This year’s conference will include an extra half-day of training, beginning at 9 a.m. on Monday and concluding at noon on Tuesday. Registration is $365 and will include a free t-shirt. You can apply to attend the conference at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/agvocacy-2dot0-conference. The application process will run from June 1 to June 24 and those selected will be notified in mid-July. Those chosen to attend are encouraged to seek sponsorships from local businesses and organizations to help cover conference and travel costs.

More details about the Agvocacy 2.0 Conference will be posted here, as well as on Facebook and Twitter, over the coming months and make sure to check follow the hashtag #ACFC11 on Twitter for the most up-to-date information!
