Kamm, communications director for the NDA honored by NASDA
The purpose of the NASDA Communications Award is to recognize an individual for outstanding work in media and public communications within a state agency resulting in improved understanding of agriculture and agricultural programs.
The 2021 NASDA Honor Award for Communications is awarded to Christin Kamm, communications director for the Nebraska Department of Agriculture. Kamm has an inherent passion for Nebraska agriculture and has worked for the department for over 15 years. Her passion, knowledge and experience make her an excellent communicator on behalf of the Nebraska. During an extreme flooding event in 2019, and again during the COVID-19 pandemic, Kamm coordinated exemplary emergency communications for the department that informed Nebraska’s farmers, ranchers and communities on state services available through NDA.
Kamm also responds to NDA’s hundreds of public information requests each year. Clear communication is essential for retaining public trust, and Kamm’s skills have been vital to the success of NDA. Also bringing value to the Nebraska’s agriculture industry, Kamm organizes the annual Governor’s Ag Conference that gives Nebraska farmers the opportunity to consult with the state’s top leadership.
