The countdown to the 2012 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show has begun and before you know it, many of us will be in Nashville. I like to refer to it as the biggest party in the cattle industry. Cattlemen and women from across the country gather together to learn about the latest issues in the beef industry, discuss upcoming policy issues, check out new products, and make many worthwhile connections.
To facilitate making connections NCBA’s Young Producers Council, the American Angus Association, and the International Brangus Breeders Association are teaming up to host two #CIC12 Tweet-Ups. Come join us on either 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 1 at the Angus booth, 1062, during the NCBA Trade Show Welcome Reception or Friday, Feb. 3 at 3 p.m. at the GoBrangus booth, 1637.
For folks tweeting from the event or who may be following along online, the official hashtag for the event will be #CIC12. And for those who aren’t currently a member of the Twitterverse but would like to be, NCBA’s Young Producers Council will have copies of our social media guides on hand.
If you have questions about the tweet-ups or about getting more active with social media please contact Jesse Bussard (@cowgirljesse) or Lauren Chase (@LaurenMSea) directly on Twitter or Facebook, or by leaving a comment below. Details can also be found on the Certified Angus Beef’s Black Ink blog and IBBA’s Beef Tips blog.
Thanks again and we hope to see you in Nashville!
