President's Message
Welcome back after summer and hope you are enjoying the Fall season. Your CAMA Manitoba board has been working hard during these past beautiful, albeit dry, months.
We're kicking off our 2018/19 Lunch n' Learn series at Farmers Edge on November 1st with a media panel who will be sharing their behavioural targeting insights and agri-media technologies. See below for event and registration details.

Furthering the topic of marketing with technology, our professional development event planned for Thursday, December 6, titled Marketing with Technology. The lineup of presenters will be covering topics such as the use of technology to optimize the customer journey, the use of augmented reality in agri-marketing, among others. If your role is to lead your organization or lead your clients, this is a must attend event. See below for event and registration details. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
Directly after the event, CAMA Manitoba will be holding our Annual General Meeting. All members in good standing are encouraged to attend.
Current members will be receiving  a request to review and approve changes to CAMA Manitoba's Constitution. Please look for this e-mail shortly; it will only take few minutes to review.
Stay tuned for details on the other Lunch n' Learn events starting in January 2019.

And as always, a big personal thank you goes out to our Board. To learn more about these incredible ag and food leaders, go to our website

The expertise and experience you can learn from other industry professionals is invaluable. It is also a great way to share your own knowledge and keep plugged into events and the most up to date information in the profession."
