Welcome to the Mississippi Association of County Agricultural Agents website. I am excited that you decided to find your way to our website. I am currently serving as president of MACAA and want to thank you for your membership and/or support of our organization. The Mississippi Association of County Agricultural Agents is the state's professional organization for Extension professionals with ties to Agriculture and Natural Resources. MACAA functions to award professionals for their achievement and supports professional development and improvement. MACAA is affiliated with the National Association of County Agricultural Agents found at nacaa.com and supports national level awards, scholarship, and professional improvement.
Members are encouraged to stay connected to both MACAA and NACAA through their web sites, and electronic mailings. Please consider nominating or encouraging your peers to apply for the many award and leadership opportunities these organizations offer.
I serve as the ANR and 4-H agent in Carroll County which is somewhat divided between the delta region of the state and the hills. This creates a large diversity of having row crops scattered throughout the county (mainly concentrated in the delta area) as well as having a large timber production and cattle producers. With our vast array of agriculture and natural resources that fill Carroll County, you can be taken back in time from a simple visit to our two county seats, Carrollton and Vaiden. Both towns boast an abundant number of historic buildings that have been featured in several movies. So, if you ever get a chance, stop by and have a tour.
Tracy R. Boone
MACAA President 2022–2023
