The 8th National Grazing Lands Conference is December 6 – 9.
You could be a speaker!
The National Grazing Lands Coalition (NatGLC) conference happens once every three years and it’s one of my favorite conferences because it focuses on how-tos and successful grazing practices. Graziers tell their stories, researchers describe how their latest discoveries can improve success, and conservation organizations and land management agencies give examples of partnerships that made all the difference. It’s a great opportunity to talk with each other one on one about what works, what doesn’t, and what we can do to help each other succeed.
You can add your voice!
This year’s conference theme is “Stewardship – Catch the Wave” playing off the conference location in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. NatGLC wants to hear your stories about grazing management that meets agricultural needs while providing environmental and social benefits.
And before you say, “Me?! Speak?!” let me say, “YES!” This is a very supportive and enthusiastic community of graziers who look forward to hearing new voices, so it’s very rewarding to be a speaker. And if you need some help or some speaking tips, I’m happy to help. In a past life I taught students the secrets to building great presentations and appearing confident and relaxed. I can do it for you too.
To be a speaker, submit a 400 word summary of your topic by May 15. You have the option of a 30 minute presentation, a 90 minute Symposium, a 90 minute workshop or a poster.
If you have any questions regarding papers/stories, contact Monti Golla, 8NGLC Conference Manager by phone – (979)777-9779 or email at email@example.com. Acceptance notifications will begin in July. Presenters are responsible for their own conference travel, registration and expenses. Grazing lands producer scholarships will be available.
