This year's VOF Annual Producer Meeting will be held on Tuessday January 26th from 10am-12pm.
This year, because of the risk of COVID 19, we will be gathering virtually for our annual meeting. Producers will be able to join the meeting using a computer, tablet or by phone. We strongly encourage producers to join using a computer or tablet if possible. We will be sending out instructions via email with the link and phone number to join the meeting. If you have any questions about how to join, do not hesitate to call us in advance of the meeting date.
This annual meeting is open to all certified producers (farmers and processors) and those interested in organic certification standards. One person from each certified operation may vote on all proposals. It is important that certified producers attend this meeting and represent the interests of their operation in the certification process.
Voting will be done differently this year than in the past. Instead of voting at the meeting, we will use the meeting as an opportunity to discuss the ballot items. After the meeting, a ballot will be sent to all certified producers. The vote will be tallied and results will be sent to producers in February.
