Today, more than 1,500 DFA members, employees and industry guests are in Kansas City, Mo. for the 2016 Annual Meeting, taking place from March 21-23.
This year’s annual meeting theme, Dairy Reimagined, couldn’t be more appropriate for this time in our industry. We are continually seeking to challenge ourselves and the status quo by reimagining how we do business to compete in a new global landscape and to serve an ever-changing consumer. This week will be a time for us to learn, share and reimagine new possibilities together.
For months, Cooperative corporate and Board leadership, your delegates and hundreds of DFA employees and vendors have been working tirelessly to prepare every aspect — from the critical resolutions that will be reviewed and voted on, to arranging for speakers who have vital information and insight to share with you on our industry and our consumers; from developing engaging presentations to preparing the venue for your arrival.
If you are unable to attend in person this year, we encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities we have for you to stay informed on every aspect of the meeting. Throughout each day, you can get timely updates on social media — Facebook and Twitter using #DFA16AM. In addition, daily coverage and photo galleries will be available here, on the newly redesigned Leader website.
We look forward to a successful 2016 Annual Meeting!
