Mandatory registration at least 24 hours before meeting


To all producers of UPA des Collines de l'Outaouais

In many ways, the year 2020 has turned our lives upside down. That's why we came up with the idea of proposing a different annual general meeting (AGM) this year.

More than ever, we need to socialize, get to know new members, share our ideas, concerns, expectations and successes, even remotely! Usually, we reserve all of this for the end of the meeting. This year, we are reversing the agenda, to give a prominent place to the pleasure of being together. The meeting will therefore open with a period of friendly exchanges. The more formal points will then be addressed.

So, I invite you this year to a "backwards AGM" to be held by videoconference. I hope that this formula will give us some human warmth, while allowing us to define together the directions to be taken for our organization in 2021.

To go along with the event, your syndicate is offering a snack box of local products worth $ 50, to each producer member who registers for the AGM. The box may be collected from your director, prior to the meeting. With this gift, we invite members to contribute the same amount in donation to Écoute agricole.

The involvement of each of us helps build the agriculture we dream of.

We're looking forward to seeing you!

Cheryl Pritchard Layer, President
