Extra-Curricular Activities in FAB

The NAMA/Agribusiness Club is a student organization within the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics. All majors are invited and encouraged to become involved in the club

  • as a way to get to know each other better
  • as means of learning more about their studies
  • as a way of networking for internships and career opportunities
  • as a way of developing leadership skills
  • and as a way of having some fun

Club activities include field trips, employer panel discussions, presentations by industry representatives, and social mixers. Sometimes, there may be service projects. Faculty members usually participate in club meetings and activities which means students get to know their advisers and instructors better. Club members often serve as a resource to the departmental administration for new ideas.

NAMA or the National AgriMarketing Association is a professional organization of persons involved in ag related marketing, advertising, public relations, media and more. The UT Chapter is a student affiliate of the professional organization. That gives students an even greater opportunity to interact with professionals in the field for jobs and internships.

Club members often become members of the UT NAMA Student Marketing Team. The Team develops a product and marketing plan for presentation in national competition each spring. The competition is held during the NAMA AgriMarketing Conference in a U.S. city. About 800 professionals and 300 students participate in this conference each year. The UT Team has been in the finals of the competition three of the last nine years. Students can receive academic credit for being on the Marketing Team.

Whether a freshman or a senior, the NAMA/Agribusiness Club has something for you.
