Georgia Association of County Agricultural Agents

Hello From Mobile–NACAA Update

This week is the National Association of County Agricultural Agents (NACAA) AM/PIC in Mobile, Al. The week has been filled with many professional improvement opportunities for agents, spouses, children and retirees. The Alabama Association of ¬†Agricultural Agents and Specialists have done an excellent job making this a world class event! The them for this year’s conference is “Discover our Southern Charm,” which is exactly what the Alabama Agents have been setting out to do. Hopefully, this blog will provide all of our members an update on some on some of the happenings and highlights of the week. Special thanks to Jill Clayton, Jenkins County Resource Manager and Emily Pitts/Michael Greenland of the Extension Web Team for the creation of this blog.
