Welcome to the SAAS Agricultural Communications Section website!
The 2017 SAAS Convention will take place in Mobile, Alabama, on Feb. 4 - 7, 2016. The Agricultural Communications Section’s meeting will take place on Feb. 5-6 (Sunday and Monday) of the overall SAAS conference.
The Agricultural Communications Section schedule can be found here.
Registration for the Agricultural Communications Section of the Southern Association of Agricultural Scientists is open through Eventbrite. The link to the registration page is https://www.eventbrite.com/e/saas-ag-comm-section-tickets-27499359324. Once to the site, click on the GREEN “TICKETS” button on the right.
Please take note of the registration fee structure. For undergraduate and graduate students, the fee is $40. For academic faculty and professionals, the fee is $110. However, IF you have registered for a different section but plan to spend significant time in the Ag Comm Section (as in if you are planning to eat the Sunday morning breakfast), we are NOT requiring the full $110; your registration fee is $60 to cover the Ag Comm section's expenses. If you are just attending a presentation or two in the Ag Comm section and will not be eating the Sunday breakfast, you are not required to pay the Ag Comm registration fee.
For those attending pre- or post-conference sessions affiliated with the Ag Comm section (Ag Comm Vision Meeting, Impact Writing Team), please pay the $60 registration fee to cover SAAS's organizational expenses.
If you have any questions, please contact SAAS Ag Communications treasurer Ricky Telg (University of Florida) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 352-273-2094.
