Welcome to the SAAS Agricultural Communications Section website!
The 2017 SAAS Convention will take place in Mobile, Alabama, on Feb. 4 - 7, 2016. The SAAS Ag Comm Section’s meeting, during the conference, will be Feb. 5-6 (Sunday from 7:30 a.m. to Monday afternoon at 3 pm). 


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. Then click on the GREEN “TICKETS” button on the right. 

Registration for academic faculty and professionals who are only registered in the Ag Communications Section is $110. If you are registered for another section at full price but plan to attend most of the Ag Communications Section and the Sunday breakfast, please register at the $50 level. Graduate and undergraduate students’ registration is $40. (The SAAS organization collects $60 for faculty/professionals and $5 for students. The $50 reduced faculty/professional registration covers just the Ag Communications Section’s expenses.) 

If you have any questions, please contact SAAS Ag Communications treasurer Ricky Telg (University of Florida) at rwtelg@ufl.edu or 352-273-2094.
