MidAtlantic Farm Credit has announced the dates of their annual stockholder meetings. The meetings will be taking place on: April 3 at the Thurmont Event Complex in Thurmont, Maryland; April 4 at the Modern Maturity Center in Dover, Delaware; and April 5 at Yoder’s Restaurant in New Holland, Pennsylvania.
Each spring, MidAtlantic Farm Credit hosts their stockholder meetings, providing an opportunity for customers, staff members, legislators, and industry representatives to come together and learn about the association. The meetings begin at 5:45pm with a networking social hour. The dinner will be served at 6:45pm, followed by a short business meeting, giving an update on Farm Credit’s financials and plans for the year ahead.
“Our stockholder meetings provide an opportunity for all who are a part of our community – members, employees, directors, and supporters – to meet and discuss topics of interest to them and our industry,” says Tom Truitt, CEO of MidAtlantic Farm Credit. “We also like to take the time to thank everyone who supports agriculture and Farm Credit. They truly are what makes our job so enjoyable, and we wouldn’t be here without them.”
In addition to learning about the business aspects of the association, the Farm Credit Foundation for Agricultural Advancement also gives an overview of their year, and announces the recipients of their ten $10,000 scholarships, helping those looking to pursue a career in agriculture achieve their academic goals. “The Foundation’s mission, to help further the education of those looking to make an impact on the future of agriculture, is something we are immensely proud of, and enjoy sharing with those who attend our annual stockholder meetings,” says Truitt.
All who attend will have the chance to enter to win a custom-wrapped John Deere Gator XUV 560 Crossover Utility Vehicle, along with opportunity to win some other raffle prizes, including a handmade quilt.
