Whether that goal is building a new terminal, creating a robust network for sharing agronomic data or shining a light on the opportunity to strengthen ties in your community though cause marketing – each of these acts are strengthened through collaborative effort.

The same can be said for the CAAR office, where our team works collaboratively year-round to ensure our members are provided with consistent and reliable service. CAAR’s membership is no different – members coming together and sharing their thoughts and ideas has always been what drives the association forward.

Over the course of the summer months, CAAR’s membership value team has reached out to many CAAR members. Led by our committee chair, Stan Loewen, the value team sought to better understand the value members see in their association, and what they wish to see it accomplish in the future.

The association is made stronger by identifying what CAAR is doing well, what can be improved and where new services can be introduced. I’d like to thank each and every person who made time in their busy schedules to share their thoughts – your feedback is essential to CAAR’s continued success. If you haven’t had a chance to share your feedback, I’d like to invite you to contact myself or Stan using the contact information provided below.
