As we approach OFA’s 2021 Annual General Meeting, it is our pleasure to announce that we have three candidates running for one Director-at-Large position on the Board of Directors. The role is for a three-year term, commencing immediately following the annual meeting on Monday, November 22. The theme of this year’s event is Connecting with Ontarians.
We are pleased to introduce Barclay Nap, Erica Miles and Sara Wood as the candidates running for this position.
Hugh Simpson, who currently sits as the Director-at-Large, has completed a three-year term and has indicated he will not be running again at this time. We thank Hugh for his tremendous passion, dedication and contributions to the organization and Ontario agriculture. We wish him all the best moving forward and appreciated his efforts while serving as a provincial director.
The role of a director offers the opportunity to speak up, engage and influence meaningful change at the provincial level. Directors advocate on behalf of Ontario farm businesses, connect with grassroots members and industry partners on key issues and priorities impacting the agri-food sector, and influence policy development and strategic planning for the organization. This active role works in collaboration with energetic and enthusiastic board members and staff to ensure the farming and food sector continues to thrive across the province.
The election for Director-at-Large will take place on the AGM agenda at 9:50 a.m.
