Ag Media Summit attendees in 2014 hope to "Rev it Up!" in Indianapolis July 26-30 as ARC collaborates with our AMS friends on this year's Silent Auction. The goal is to exceed last year's revenue of more than $3,500.
A record 50 items were available at last year's meeting in Buffalo. Funds raised through the auction are used to fund various youth programs of AMS, and are shared equally with ARC. This will be the fifth year ARC will collaborate with AMS on the Silent Auction.
