The AAEA membership task force and Board of Directors hosted a webinar discussion on newly proposed membership categories on May 14. Amy Roady, AAEA membership chair led discussion by giving background on how the task force came to land on these potential categories and then described them in full. To listen to the full webinar (approx. 30 minutes) CLICK HERE.
In hopes of addressing any common concerns, the board also recently developed a set of Frequently Asked Questions about the proposed membership categories. View them HERE.
A change in membership categories requires amendments to the AAEA constitution. The constitution is amended by a vote of the members physically present at the annual membership business meeting. This membership meeting will take place at the 2018 Ag Media Summit in Scottsdale, Arizona on Tuesday, August 7. A conference call line will be open for comments from those who cannot attend in person, but votes will not be accepted via conference call. More details to come.
