A group of six from our Omaha office traveled to Kansas City in mid-April for the 2012 Agri-Marketing Conference and Trade Show in Kansas City hosted by the National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA). A process that began in October 2011, the NAMA Awards eventually received over 1,200 entries from six regions, including a number of entries from Swanson Russell. In January, we were notified that we had won five first place awards and four merit awards, making us eligible to advance to the national competition.
