  • Can present posters at SAAS – Ag Comm, SAAS – Ag Ed, ALE, ACE, AIAEE Will have to do one for AEE 6767
  • Read the “Call for Posters” carefully Don’t have to use every heading, but should have something from each bullet point
  • Don’t wait until the last minute – problems may happen with the printer (I tried 4 times to print the poster for ACE this summer). Make it easy to read – no distracting backgrounds. Clean fonts, nothing too fancy.
