The annual meeting and professional improvement conference (AM PIC) is our way every year to receive national recognition for our county and state work. The Achievement award winners were recognized this morning at their recognition breakfast for their achievements as Ag Agents with less than ten years in Extension. Congratulations to Renee Allen, Stephanie Hollifield, Clark McCallister, and Andrew Sawyer. Georgia’s communication winners were honored with a special lunch as well today. Georgia had national and regional winners this year in multiple categories. Congratulations to Paul Pugliese for being a national finalist for his video recording.
Tuesday of the AM PIC has been jammed packed with presentations by Ag Agents from all over the country sharing their programming. To accomdate all of the presentations to be offered, the NACAA Board decided to shorten the General Session on Wednesday to make more time for presentations opportunities. Learning from other colleagues is my favorite way to glean new ideas to take home to producers. It is also the time I realize so many of us are doing great programming and should be here sharing the good work with others. Kudos to Tim Daley, Brenda Jackson, Amanda Tedrow, Tucker Price, Laura Griffeth, Renee Allen, Carole Knight, and Paula Burke who are presenting at this years conference.
Later in the week I will share an complete list with the membership of who received awards and presented at the 2018 AM PIC.
