Sometimes, you leave a meeting and think, “That was a great meeting. I am really glad that happened.” It can be an insightful comment, an engaged group of participants, action to follow up on, or confirmation the organization is on the right track. I had one of those meetings recently.
Being at the helm of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA), a president’s schedule would typically be filled with in-person speaking engagements, meetings, workshops, and events. COVID-19 has unfortunately limited our face-to-face interactions and has put a pause on informal chats over a cup of coffee or a shared meal.
