the fall of 2011, the OCA Board of Directors committed to a
pilot project in collaboration with the Rural Ontario Institute
to deliver a training program for beef producers that want to
improve their leadership skills. This long-term investment will
not only provide industry leaders with the knowledge and
confidence to excel, it will provide stronger leadership
capabilities for the entire Association. The program will be
accepting 40 participants in the first year of the program and
training will be provided on effective communications, meeting
management, organization governance and beef industry issues.
The knowledge and skills developed
through participation in this program will include a focus on
the individual, on effective meetings, and on the organization.
