RFA There are lots of organizations that are involved in some aspect of domestic fuels. I had the opportunity to talk with two of them this week in Kansas City at the National Association of Farm Broadcasters meeting. The first is the Renewable Fuels Association. According to their website, RFA was started in 1981 to be a voice for the ethanol industry “providing advocacy, authoritative analysis, and important industry data to its members, Congress, federal and state government agencies, strategic partners, the media and other opinion-leader audiences.” RFA lobbies on behalf of renewable fuels on the national level and was very involved in the drive for comprenensive energy legislation to help the industry. Click here to listen to my interview RFA President Bob Dinneen at NAFB. Bob did many interviews on Thursday in Kansas City with farm broadcasters from all over the country. RFA recently announced a new feature for their website – archived audio and video clips! The “Video Archives” and “Audio Comments,” located under the Media Center menu, will provide video clips of important industry events as well as audio versions of the latest news from RFA. Both media formats may be downloaded for later viewing or use in news reports. That’s a great way to use the website to get information out to both the media and the general public!
