75th NAFB Convention

The 75th annual National Association of Farm Broadcasting (NAFB) convention held at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, Missouri November 7-9, 2018.

The NAFB was founded in 1944 as the National Association of Radio Farm Directors (NARFD). Television was added to the name in 1955 to become NATRFD. The next name change came in 1964 to the more inclusive National Association of Farm Broadcasters and NAFB. In 2005, the name was changed from Broadcasters to Broadcasting.

This virtual ag newsroom, sponsored by FMC Corporation, includes links to digital media content available free of charge for digital or print publication or broadcast.
