Let Member Services Help you Plug In to Digital Agriculture!

By Chris Crutchfield, AgGateway Member Services

As a live music lover, I’m excited that this year’s AgGateway Annual Conference is being held in Austin – the capital city of Texas, and arguably the music capital of the United States. The city has more than 250 music venues and is home to festivals for all musical tastes. AgGateway’s conference theme, “Get Plugged In” pays homage to the city’s musical heritage while encouraging the ag industry to also “plug in” to reap the benefits of digital agriculture.

Member Services will be on stage again this year, performing, “Member Services Live!” to help you do just that. Okay, it’s not really a performance, but as in years past we will be available throughout the conference at a desk near registration, to provide personal assistance on everything from your membership, to helping you find available AgGateway resources, or to simply provide you directions to your next meeting.

Consider stopping by the Member Services desk and take a moment to review your contact information on file with AgGateway. Having up-to-date email addresses, phone numbers and other demographics helps us communicate with you and your organization more efficiently. You can also ask us how the new AgGateway member portal can assist in this effort.

The AgGateway annual conference agenda offers many opportunities to plug in to what is happening in digital agriculture. One session you may find of interest is the AGIIS Modernization Prioritization Session, Tuesday at 1:30 pm, hosted by the Ag Industry Identification System’s (AGIIS) Directory Oversight Committee. This session will give your company an opportunity to provide input into future functionality of AGIIS.

The Annual Conference is always a productive, enjoyable event and I look forward to seeing you there. I encourage you to ask Member Services how we can help you advance in your digital agriculture journey…and perhaps we can enjoy some live music together while we’re at it!
