Enthusiastically I incepted to riddle over the nitty- gritty of the rave of the moment;the NAAS Annual National Convention and auspiciously,I was dispersed of my illusions which are more of a swindle misapprehension.  The better by far convention not only aims at fostering national peace and unity but as well forming a cluster between sound intellectuals of Agricultural students within the states of the federation. Below are the top 5 reasons you should attend the convention and consider coming along with your friends.

Invest In Yourself

Perhaps, this is self-evident. Simply put, attending the NAAS convention is a means of investing in yourself.
It’s admitting that you’re worth it. It’s admitting that you still have things to learn. That you can get better.!
It’s an investment in yourself, your career,your dream and even your future. When you book a seat at the convention and when you walk up to the registration desk, you’re invariably saying that you’re investing in your own career,your growth!
The idea is that sometimes you have to take a break from the “work” of your work to sharpen your skills. A dull axe won’t cut a tree nearly as effectively as a sharp one. Hope you know?

The Energy of Like-Minded Individuals

There’s nothing like being in a room of like-minded people. Being amidst fellow youths and Agricultural practitioners is a cannonical way to improve your intellects and your cognitive impairment. When you sit in the auditorium, you discover that you’re not alone in wanting to improve your skills and add something to your store of wisdom. Just so,the NAAS Convention is not exception but a better template of meeting like minded individuals.With no iota of doubt,you will definitely return from the better by far convention with new ideas and approaches that make you more effective and efficient as a youth.

Networking Opportunities

No doubt,I’m not a master networker. I struggle with finding the right way to break into a conversation with new  people often times and I have assent to this as a personal inclination. But I’ve gotten better by attending just few conferences. By sitting at lunch tables with people I don’t (yet) know. I’ve made some amazing connections and even more amazing friends of varying status from going to live events such as a convention.
The NAAS National convention have opportunities for attendees to mix and mingle, form new relationships, and strengthen existing ones.

Have Fun!

 Not sure this is the most important of all the aforementioned list. Convention and or conferences are fun! Live events with other people are fun! The introverts reading this may be rolling their eyes or going to their happy places right now. Believe you me,the NAAS better by far Convention is a template to pinnacles of catching fun. Wholly,the event is fun-filled and classically, sequential schedules have been put in place ranging from zoo visitation,picnic, various sports activities amongst other intellectual-fun event.


I get it. It could seem a bit costly. From the accomodation to feeding, transportationand perhaps time taken to attend, put all as registration charges.
On the contrary,you have a lot to gain. Most importantly,the certificate you will be issued is a form of CV enrichment in addition to other freebies including customized shirts,tags,pen, fascinating sourveniers amongst others. Worry less, your welfarism is rightly covered. Trust us!

What next?

I found it expedient to put up this short piece lately as we prepare for the 3rd NAAS National convention. The schedule are as follows:
Date: 21st -24th August,2019.
Venue: university of Ilorin, Ilorin,Kwara state, Nigeria.
Cost: Use the comment box to show interest and you will get a response soonest.

Aptly and subtly, the better by far convention is a unique, adroit and frabjous convergence of networking, learning and fun in a single package  which you can’t afford to miss!
Of course Social media keeps you connected to your peers who are both local and “from away.” However, believe you me, there’s no substitution for meeting someone IRL (in real life)! And in fact there’s no substitution to the better by far convention!
