Performance Measurement for Agricultural Societies

OMAFRA is offering a workshop on Friday, February 15 from 1:30-2:30 p.m. at the 2019 Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies Convention for the Measuring Your Societies Performance to Tell Your Story Workshop. The conference is taking place at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel & Suites, in Richmond Hill, Ontario from Thursday February 14th to Friday February 15th.

Helen Scutt, Agriculture Organization Specialist for the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, will be presenting on how to use performance measures to increase accountability, support evidence-based decision-making, and keep your society focused on continuous improvement.

The Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies Convention brings together upwards of 1000 delegates from across the province, provides the OAAS Members with education, information, and networking opportunities that are meant to improve the operations of individual Agricultural Societies.

This workshop will also discuss how to develop performance measures that will help your society articulate what success looks like in a tangible way and establish a method to track success. Societies need to ‘tell your good news story’ to your members, sponsors, vendors, politicians and the public.

The Paris Agricultural Society will also share their successful experiences in using performance measures, with presenters Cheryl Muir, General Manager, and Jim Lawrence, President.
