COMMUNICATIONS & MARKETING COMMITTEE

The Communications and Marketing Committee (CMC) is a standing committee of APLU’s Board on Agriculture Assembly (BAA) Policy Board of Directors. The CMC oversees and guides the educational effort to increase awareness of the land-grant universities’ agricultural and related programs, Agricultural Experiment Stations, and Cooperative Extension Services. The CMC is supported by three sections of the BAA: Administrative Heads, Cooperative Extension, and Experiment Station.
