The OFA 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) is right around the corner, and we would like to announce that we have three candidates running for the role of Director-at-Large. The position is for a three-year term, commencing immediately following the AGM on Monday, November 23, 2020. The theme of this year’s event is Navigating our Road to Recovery.
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 be held at the virtual AGM on Monday, November 23 at approximately 11:00 a.m.
We are excited to announce that Peggy Brekveld, Barclay Nap and Jamie Reaume will be running for this role.
