I have been an IAMN member since 2015 and as an academic professional, I have benefitted tremendously from the annual conferences of the institute as well as opportunities to present scientific findings within the agribusiness industries for peer review as well as learn about the latest research outputs of other members. I attended the 2015 conference held at Chike Okoli Conference centre, Nnamdi Azikwe University, Awka, Anambra State and also the 2018 conference at Jogor Centre, Ibadan, Oyo state. Both conferences were masterpiece events for scientific adaptation of agribusiness researches for industrial applications. I am also the secretary of IAMN Benue state chapter. Indeed, IAMN membership has been a blessing to my career.
