Farm journalists are Texas bound – #AgMS

69c4c55d78It’s time to hit the road for another International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ) congress. This year takes us to Fort Worth, Texas where the US hosts are set to welcome more than 700 delegates from up to 30 different countries.

We’ll be immersed in the cowboy spirit during our stay in Fort Worth, learning about agriculture in Texas, getting reacquainted with international delegates and brushing up on our professional development skills.

For myself, this will be my third IFAJ congress. I began blogging right around the time I went to the congress in Japan in September 2007 – and have been steadily at it ever since. You can check out IFAJ 2007 and IFAJ 2008 (hosted jointly by Austria and Slovenia) through archived posts on this blog.

Stay tuned for updates from Texas – I’m looking forward to finally experiencing some heat and sun this summer!
