A first-ever opportunity. The Association for Communication Excellence (ACE) in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Life and Human Sciences is joining forces with the 2018 Ag Media Summit (AMS), the largest annual gathering of crop and livestock media professionals in the United States.

ACE will partner for the first time in this joint meeting of the American Agricultural Editors’ Association, the Livestock Publications Council and the Connectiv Agri-Media Committee. With the addition of ACE, more than 850 media and communications professionals are expected to attend.

More about Ag Media Summit. The AMS provides excellent professional development opportunities with sessions on a wide range of communication issues. It also offers an ideal chance to promote your organization to working agricultural journalists from across the country.

This annual meeting brings together the agriculture’s top writers, editors, photographers, publishers and communication specialists. It begins with pre-meeting events, followed by three days of programming.

Be a part of the next AMS. Stay tuned for more information as meeting planning gets underway.

ACE Development Fund Silent Auction

We are seeking donations for the ACE Development Fund Silent Auction. The annual fundraising event will take place August 6-7 at the Ag Media Summit. It will be combined with the Agricultural Relations Council-AMS auction. Proceeds will go to fund student scholarships and professional development opportunities for ACE members.

In past auctions handcrafted items, original artwork, jewelry, gift baskets, local foods, wines, and adult beverages have brought top dollar. We appreciate your originality and thoughtfulness in support of a good cause.

If you’d rather not carry it with you, ship your auction item to yourself in care of the hotel. Label it with your arrival date and other pertinent information and keep your tracking number handy! The resort address:

Westin Kierland Resort and Spa
6902 E. Greenway Parkway
Scottsdale, AZ 885254
