Growth Energy was thrilled to once again attend the National Association of Farm Broadcaster’s (NAFB) annual convention, where we hosted the Past President’s dinner for the ninth year running and participated in Trade Talk with ag reporters from across the country.
The Past President’s Dinner brings together the former presidents of NAFB and key voices in the agricultural community. At this year’s dinner, we were honored to be joined by former USDA Secretary John Block and legendary farm radio voices and past presidents, such as Orion Samuelson and Max Armstrong. We are proud to work with NAFB to host this dinner and are grateful for their continued support of our industry and rural Americans.

The following day, Senior Vice President of Global Markets Craig Willis and Vice President of Market Development Mike O’Brien completed over 30 radio, TV, and print interviews with ag reporters at the convention’s Trade Talk. Trade Talk is an opportunity to speak with reporters from across the country about Growth Energy’s work to grow market opportunities, both in the U.S. and abroad, and how we are leading the way in E15 retail expansion.

We look forward to next year’s Trade Talk and to update agricultural voices on the benefits of ethanol fuels and its growing popularity around the globe.
