MESSAGE FROM THE PAST PRESIDENT
I would like to take a few minutes of your precious time to wish you a colourful fall and to reiterate my support to the Pontiac Chamber of Commerce. Elected in June 2014 as president of this business association which allowed me to meet creative, dynamic and competitive entrepreneurs, I believe it is time to pass the torch to others in order to ensure that innovative ideas are created for this important association for Pontiac businesses that deserve the attention they are given.

National Farm Business Management Resource Centre
Farm Management Canada would like to announce the launch of the National Farm Business Management Resource Centre now available at www.takeanewapproach.ca.
“The National Farm Business Management Resource Centre will provide farmers across Canada with access to tools and learning opportunities to support farm business skills development all in one place,” says Heather Watson, Executive Director of Farm Management Canada.
From business planning tools to workshops and webinars, the website will host farm business management resources in a variety of formats to meet the learning preference and practices of Canada’s farmers.
Planning for success may seem daunting, but it can be as easy as starting here, with a commitment to learning more, and finding the tools that can help you start, grow or transition your farm business.
As a one-stop-shop, the National Farm Business Management Resource Centre will showcase the best resources available, ensuring Canada’s farmers are equipped with the learning resources necessary to build their capacity to confront change with confidence and seize opportunities.
