The National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) at Illinois State University is made up primarily of agriculture students with a wide variety of majors. This registered student organization spends all year working together on a marketing plan for an innovative product with a mission to improve the agricultural industry. The club competes in a marketing competition against many universities across the country. The goal is to market its agricultural product in the most sensible, financially responsible, and creative ways possible. ISU NAMA was one of the top six finalists at the competition and also received the 1st place John Deere Signature Award in April in Kansas City, Missouri.
ISU NAMA will compete in the student marketing competition in Dallas, Texas in April of 2017. In order to help fund the travel, lodging, and other miscellaneous expenses needed for the trip, NAMA is selling pork products from the University Farm at Lexington. The club is selling brats, brat patties, and breakfast sausage at $4 per pound. Once an order is ready, an email will be sent to the customer. All meat purchases can be picked up at the Ropp Agriculture Building. Payment is due at the time of the pickup.
