CAMPAIGN: The AGgregator


By Amelia Sprague

The National Association of Farm Broadcasting (NAFB) and Farm Credit are now recruiting social media savvy agricultural communications students to join the 2015 NAFB Social Media Corps.

For the third year in a row, Social Media Corps members will develop a content plan – including creating videos, photos, tweets and Facebook posts – and will manage the online conversation during the annual convention and Trade Talk.

To prepare for this highly-visible assignment, Social Media Corps students will receive training from the Farm Credit National Communications Team focused on strategic social media program development and execution. The Social Media Corps members will share their NAFB experiences, and drive online conversation with both conference attendees and the broader online community.

This unique opportunity allows students to gain real-world experience in their chosen field and learn how to use social media as a business tool. Do you have what it takes to be a member of the 2015 NAFB Trade Talk Social Media Corps? We’re looking for students who are:

  • Planning to attend the NAFB Convention in Kansas City, MO, November 11-13
  • Passionate about social media and digital storytelling
  • Active on social media channels and have social media experience
  • Looking to learn more about running a strategic social media program

Apply by October 10, 2015. To give yourself an edge over your competition in the selection process, we encourage you to show the judges your social media skills and make sure to use the official event hashtag: #NAFB15

Travel and lodging costs will not be covered. For information about member benefits, click here

NAFB Social Media Corps members will be notified by October 19, 2015. Please feel free to share this blog post with your agricultural communications peers and your social media networks. We can't wait to hear from you!
