BEEF FARMERS OF ONTARIO 2022 VIRTUAL AGM
"Taking Care of Business"
February 23 & 24, 2022
BFO’s 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM), themed “Taking Care of Business”, will be hosted virtually over two days in the afternoons of February 23 and 24. The usual business activities of the association will be presented and reviewed by voting delegates, including the financials and resolutions, but the mechanics of the meeting will operate differently. Elections for BFO director and committee positions will be conducted in advance by the voting delegates, and a vote to ratify the election results will be presented at the AGM.
Registration is now open! Click HERE.
Draft BFO 2022 AGM Agenda
BFO is looking forward to two keynote presentations this year. On day one, we will welcome author Michele Payne who will join us for a conversation on food bullying and how we can best position Ontario beef in the minds of our consumers, followed by Kaleb Dahlgren on day two who is also an author, and community advocate and Humboldt crash survivor. Kaleb will chat with us about the importance of maintaining physical and mental health.
The 2022 Beef Farmers of Ontario Annual Report is now available.
While BFO's AGM will be held virtually once again, there are still many of the same benefits available for our sponsors to consider. Sponsors will be given exposure in a number of different mediums, including social media recognition in advance of the meeting. If your company/organization is interested in providing sponsorship, the following package summarizes the return on investment you will receive at the various sponsorship levels.
