Welcome to the USAIN Web site!
USAIN (the United States Agricultural Information Network) is a professional organization for agriculture information professionals in the U.S., Canada, and Latin America. We are an active and dynamic group of people who are passionate about we do and who are always interested in finding ways to use technologies – both new and old – to get agricultural information to the people who need it. USAIN actively supports public information policy that provides access and preservation of information about food, agriculture, and natural resources.
During non-conference year such as this one, USAIN provides its members with opportunities to network and share knowledge using a number of online and social media venues. Our new Professional Development Committee will be developing some exciting virtual options for sharing and learning!
Our next biennial conference will be held 4 – 7 May 2014 and will be hosted by the University of Vermont. These conferences provide wonderful opportunities for members to share their experiences and best practices both formally through presentations and informally at the social events. More information about the conference, including a call for proposals, will be available in Fall 2013.
Please explore our Web site to find out more about USAIN. We welcome new members – individual, institutional, and student memberships are available. If you have questions about our organization, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
