Mrs. Audrey Luke-Morgan recently advertised a new club to not just agriculture students, but students of all majors, called the Ag Business Club.
The Ag Business club meets every other week, when they feature a guest speaker who can give advice to students that are interested in entertaining a job in the field of business. One of the speakers was M.J. Hall, a Tifton native and an alumnus of ABAC.
When he was attending school, he never saw himself working in the area of agriculture but he is now employed at KMC and enjoys learning how the diversity of agriculture grows every day. One of the ways this club stays on top is through its national affiliation with NAMA, which stands for National Agri-Marketing Association.
Through NAMA, a team of selected students spend one academic year researching and planning a marketing presentation on an agricultural process. Even if you aren’t interested in agriculture NAMA provides a way for others to learn and practice marketing skills.
The club’s main focuses is on agriculture-related business but also presents opportunities for students to come and learn about business in general. Luke Morgan says if you are thinking about business, marketing, communications, management, or development think about joining the Ag Business Club.
