From the Interim President

How can I measure the success of my tenure as the interim president and the 25th Expo? Was  it the cooperation of the committees? Was it the smiles on people's faces? Was it the number of members in attendance? Was it the number of farmers in attendance? Was it the generosity of the sponsors? Was it the quality of our guest speakers? Was it the camaraderie present? Was it the hospitality of our hotel staff? You probably can add to the list, but the greatest success is the resiliency of our Organization to be successful for 25 years.

 

I am very grateful to serve as your President during this historic time. Things happen for a divine reason and I am more determined to dedicate more time and energy to the future success of The Organization.

 

Thanks to each one of you for your support regardless of how small. May you also be blessed during this Holiday Season.

 

 

Thanks again,

 

 

 

 

James Ford, President
