It's time for HVYFC's annual general meeting and potluck! Join us to recap the season, discuss next year's vision, and swap mud stories. Please bring a dish or drink to share!
At this year's meeting we will be holding our first ever election for chapter leaders. Why are we holding elections? Well, the simple answer is that the National Young Farmers Coalition has asked all of their sponsored chapters (which includes us!) to hold elections for four leadership roles. The longer answer is that we believe we will be more effective at organizing to address the challenges we as young farmers face in agriculture in the Hudson Valley if we have clearer guiding roles within our chapter. We are a network that encourages cooperation and communication among farmers and welcome all members to take part in this election. Our chapter was founded in 2012 as a nonhierarchical team of young farmers and farm advocates and we are committed to collaborative decision-making within our new chapter structure. The nomination and election process will take place at the end of the general meeting.
