Event Description

The CCA's third Town Hall meeting will take place in Chelsey, Ontario on July 18, 2012. Hosted in partnership with the Ontario Cattlemen's Association (OCA), the event will be held at the Chesley Community Centre in conjunction with the Bruce County Cattlemen's Association Annual barbecue and the OCA Summer Advisory Councillor Meeting.

OCA President and CCA director Dan Darling said that CCA Town Halls offer a lot of value for producers.
"Not all discussions and exchanges of value to our province's beef industry take place in boardrooms and trade show settings or in the capital cities," he said.

Darling added it's of great benefit to combine the CCA Town Hall with the Bruce County barbecue and the OCA advisory councillor meeting

"Town hall meetings allow Ontario beef farmers to connect with each other and with their provincial and national organizations," he said. "When an opportunity arises to have our national leadership attend local, grassroots events in our province, we wholeheartedly welcome them and encourage our membership to come out, to learn first-hand about the Canadian Cattlemen's efforts on their behalf, and to help shape the future direction of this industry."

CCA town hall meetings provide an excellent opportunity for producers to connect with CCA executives and managers, get the latest industry news and stay up-to-date on the many activities and initiatives CCA is involved in on behalf of Canada's 83,000 beef cattle producers.

The CCA Town Hall event will take place at 2:00 p.m. ET at the Chesley Community Centre located at 129 4th Avenue S.E, Chesley, ON. The Bruce County Cattlemen's Association Annual barbecue will follow at 5:00 p.m.

There is no fee to attend the CCA Town Hall meeting but space is limited so we do ask interested producers to please RSVP at www.cattle.ca/townhall or call Matt French at 403-275-8558. Sponsorship from Farm Credit Canada enables the CCA to hold town hall events through to 2014.
