Like many weeks thus far, this one consisted of time working on office tasks as well as tasks away from the office. On Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, I spent a lot of time doing my general tasks, like writing press releases, editing content for our quarterly magazine, or creating graphics. On Tuesday, I attended my first OPC board meeting, where I was I tasked with taking minutes for the meeting. I enjoyed seeing how the board operates and how it affects the council. It is interesting to work in this type of organization, as there are many decisions that are made or influenced by this group of men and women, but I won’t see them too much in the office. I could tell that the board members really cared about the industry and desire to see OPC grow and thrive. On Friday, I worked another of OPC’s events, the Pork Chop Golf Outing. During the event, I completed numerous tasks, such as errand running, taking photos, and cleaning and setting-up the event. The golf outing was attended by pork farmers or agriculture industry professionals.
