Please join the Organic Trade Association (OTA) Board of Directors in Portland, Oregon, for a regional meeting and networking event on Wednesday, February 1 at the Hilton Portland.
The OTA Board will be in town for Organicology and its annual winter Board meeting and retreat, and would like the opportunity to hear from you and your colleagues in the Pacific Northwest organic community. Board members will facilitate a discussion about issues facing organic food and fiber farmers, processors, distributors, retailers and others in the region.
You'll hear directly from Board Members about the trade association's major initiatives and plans for the opportunities and uncertainties that lie ahead in 2017. The Board is also eager to hear YOUR PRIORITIES, and help connect the dots about how OTA can help your organic business thrive.
We'll end the meeting with a reception co-hosted by OTA, Accredited Certifiers Association, Organic Materials Review Institute, Sustainable Food Trade Association, Tilth, and Organicology.
