On Wednesday night, we held the last of our five annual stockholder meetings.
I’d like to thank the almost 2000 guests who came out to hear an update on our association, visit with friends, and have the opportunity to ask me and our entire staff any questions that they had as stockholders. It’s very gratifying to know that we have an active membership who care about the performance of their association.
It also was nice to see so many members of our community—industry representatives, equipment dealers, legislators and their staff members, Realtors, business consultants—all of the vital people in our community that keep the ag industry viable.
At each of the meetings, multiple people came up to me to thank me for helping them, and for continuing to support agriculture. It was wonderful to hear so many positive comments! Of course, I can’t take all of the credit for that happening—MidAtlantic has a strong, committed staff that makes sure that the helping happens. They’re the ones who make sure we “Walk the Talk” (our theme this year) every day, and I think they do a great job at it.
In the next week or so, we’ll post an audio recording of our meeting on our website, at http://www.mafc.com/. We’ll also post the slides from my presentation, as well as the presentation from our board chairman and our chief financial officer.
If you didn’t get a chance to attend the meetings, I invite you to check out the meeting materials (and our annual stockholder report, which you can also find on our website here). If you have any questions after you read them, please send your questions to email@example.com. If the question is to me, I promise I will answer it personally. If not, we’ll make sure that the right person responds to you.
Thank you to everyone who attended, and to everyone who made the meetings such a success. If you were at one of the meetings, and wanted to leave any feedback below, please do. We love to hear feedback!!
