2020 Conference & Annual General Meeting - Register Online

 

The Alberta Federation of Agriculture and its Board of Directors would like to invite you to our 2020 Sustainability Conference and Annual General Meeting, January 21­-22, 2020 in Nisku, AB at the Holiday Inn & Suites Edmonton Airport & Conference Centre. Our new event format kicks off Monday evening with fellowship and networking at the President's Reception, followed by a full day of conference based on our theme of sustainability in agriculture.  The event will wrap with a half day focused on AGM business.

 

Throughout the past year, AFA has been involved in a number of issues, lending a voice for Alberta's farmers, including spearheading a producer survey on the issue of proposed changes to seed royalties on cereal crops.  The event is a great place to hear about issues and opportunities in agriculture, while ensuring your voice is heard to help shape the policy that governs the industry. 

 

"We are excited about our new event format where we will see some really great speakers cover the very relevant topic of sustainability in our industry," noted Lynn Jacobson, AFA president.  "All are welcome and we invite both members and non-members to stay for our AGM and see what AFA has been up to this past year while having input on the directions that will help to shape our 2020 efforts."

 

As part of this process, AFA members can submit a resolution in writing to AFA’s head office in advance of the AGM (email to: info@afaonline.ca), no later than January 13, 2020. Those who submit a resolution in advance still need to attend the January 2020 AGM to speak to the information and have it seconded so delegates at the AGM can debate the resolution and vote on it.

 

We look forward to connecting with our AFA members at the AGM to hear their valuable input. Your participation will help make our industry stronger.
