CAAR is pleased to welcome two new, independent-retailer representatives to the association’s board of directors. Joining the board are Mike Gaumont of McEwen’s Fuels & Fertilizers and Stu Rassmussen of Blair’s Family of Companies.

The board of directors leads the associations activities as it strives to strengthen the ag retail industry in Canada through its advocacy activities and valuable member services. Gaumont and Rassmussen’s appointments to the CAAR board of directors demonstrate the association’s commitment to ensuring that agri-retailers are the majority group represented on the board.
