SOFA "Speak Out For Agriculture" Planning Committee Mtg


  • 01/20/2013 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Speak Out For Agriculture XIX (or 19) Planning Committee met twice in December. At the initial meeting we reviewed 2012 and chose focus areas for 2013. SOFA XIX will focus on promotion, legislative issues and a career based overnight trip. Committee members formed interest area research teams for the June trip. The group investigated stops related to Livestock; Businesses; Manufacturing; and Universities and Community Colleges in Eastern Iowa, Illinois and the Chicago area. At the December 30 meeting team members worked on sound bites relating to manufacturing, grain and livestock production and wind energy. They will be used in a promotional video the group is working on. We have added two new members to the team Joey Huntington (Adair County) and Jessica Aupperle (Cass County). Next meeting is scheduled for Sunday, January 20 from 4:00 -6:00 p.m. at the Adair County Extension office. Thank you to businesses and individuals who have generously given to support the SOFA program.
