Podcast: Agricultural Issues Academy

In this podcast, Joel Grams, a farmer from Minden and member of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, shares how communications are so much different today when it comes to agricultural issues. Food and agriculture are hot topics that we find in the public eye on a daily basis.

That's why the Nebraska Corn Growers Association and Nebraska Corn Board is two of several Nebraska ag groups to sponsor the annual Agricultural Issues Academy—or AIA. Held in conjunction with the Nebraska State FFA convention last week, this one-day event focused on developing strong spokespeople for agriculture.

Academy participants attend round-robin sessions on how to speak with industry leaders and lawmakers. They even accompany agriculture lobbyists to visit the State Legislature and meet the state senator from their home district.
