The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) will continue its partnership with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and AG CONNECT Expo for the 2011 show, January 8-10 in Atlanta.

NACD and AEM have partnered on various projects for more than four decades on an awards program that recognizes individual conservation districts for using new and innovative technologies, tools and equipment in conservation efforts.

“Our involvement in AG CONNECT Expo 2011 will generate greater conservation awareness and support AEM and its efforts within the Ag industry. It will also serve to enhance awareness of and elevate the profile of NACD among producers and agribusiness in general,” said Jeff Eisenberg, chief executive officer of NACD.. “AG CONNECT Expo will exhibit the kind of equipment necessary for conservation advancement.”

Incidentally, NACD’s annual meeting will be held in Nashville shortly after AG CONNECT Expo. The theme for for NACD’s 65th annual meeting is conservation “From the Roots Up” and the dates are January 30 through February 2, 2011.
