Agribusiness Management/National Agricultural Marketing Association Club (ABM/NAMA)
The ABM/NAMA club is a great way for students to learn about the agribusiness industry. The club allows students to attend industry conventions, compete in marketing competitions, and network with agribusiness professionals. Being involved in the club is also a great way to meet and socialize with other students.
Each winter, Cal Poly’s Agribusiness Management club organizes the Ag Showcase. Over 80 companies participate in this job fair, which allows students to network with company representatives and to learn about internship and job opportunities.
Students that are on the National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) marketing competition team have the opportunity to create and present a complete marketing plan for a new agricultural or food product. The team begins working at the end of fall quarter each year, with their work culminating at the national competition in April in Kansas City where the team competes against teams from nearly 40 other universities. Being a part of the NAMA team exposes students to a rich and rewarding experience that takes learning out of the classroom and into a real-world environment where they are engaged, under pressure, and challenged.

Important Things to Note When Registering for Ag Showcase
- If you plan to register for both days, you will need to fill out the registration for each day separately.
- When you enter your mobile phone number during registration, you will receive a text message from Brazen. Reply “YES” to that text message if you would like to subscribe to receive notifications related to Ag Showcase from Brazen. You can opt-out of receiving these text messages anytime by replying “STOP” to the message thread.
- Once you’ve created a Brazen account and registered, you will have the opportunity to update your registration information. If you plan on updating your resume prior to Ag Showcase, you can do so after you have registered and can upload the updated version of your resume anytime prior to the start of the event.
- Brazen allows for the submission of ONE resume during registration that can be viewed by any company representatives you chat with during Ag Showcase. Because of this, it is recommended that you create a general resume to upload to Brazen. If you would like to tailor your resume to a specific company and/or employment position, please ask the representative of that company for their email during your chat with them and email your tailored resume to that representative individually.
- RECOMMENDATION: Watch the Virtual Event Guide video created by Brazen to get a general overview of how the platform works. This video can be found near the bottom of the Ag Showcase landing page.
- If you have any questions, please contact the Ag Showcase Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org for support.
