Fresh Ideas, Growing Together

2019 Spring Regional Meetings

CFO Board of Directors, District Committee Representatives (DCRs) and CFO staff-associates hosted a series of Spring Regional Meetings in April, 2019.

CFO farmer-members were encouraged to attend one of the meetings in order to stay up-to-date on the latest Board business and chicken industry news. We were fortunate to meet with one-third of our farmer-members - all across the province in London, Guelph, Grimsby, Cobourg, Clinton and Fournier.

  • Building Value, Shaping the Future, Together – Ed Benjamins, Chair & Rob Dougans, President & CEO – CLICK HERE to access this presentation
