Ag Retailers Celebrated for Making a Difference

The Canadian Association of Agri-Retailers honoured five Canadian ag retailers for their outstanding achievements in business, community and stewardship. The winners received their awards in the company of their peers during ag retail’s biggest night of the year: the 12th annual CAAR’s Choice Awards Banquet, part of the 2019 CAAR Conference held this month in Winnipeg, MB.

“The CAAR Choice Awards program is our opportunity to recognize individuals and companies who have succeeded in making a difference,” said Mitch Rezansoff, Executive Director of CAAR. “They are among the leaders who are already, or who will become, integral in recognizing opportunities for our industry now and in the future.”

2019 CAAR Conference - Day Two Recap

Day Two of the 2019 CAAR Conference featured a sensational speaker program, plenty of networking opportunities, CAAR’s always-popular Pro-Ag Investments Auction and ag retail's biggest evening: CAAR's Choice Awards Banquet.

Roundtable Networking Discussions

The morning started bright and early, with a select number of conference delegates enjoying a working breakfast during Roundtable Networking Discussions. Attendees pre-registered for one of four discussion topics: Retail Management, Safety and Training, Technology and Services and Sales and Customer Services.

Brian Downie, manager of Shur Gro Farm Services Wawanesa branch, called the Retail Management discussion a great way to start the day with inspiration from hearing a variety of perspectives in his group.

“The discussion went very well. I was seated primarily with new contacts. It was good to hear perspectives from different retails, different companies and think about how I can maybe take some of these ideas home to my business,” says Downie. “It was definitely very valuable.”
