I want to thank you for your continued support of the Florida Agritourism Association. Without it, we would not have been so successful in passing meaningful legislation over the past few years.
FATA is growing. It is now time for you, the members, to elect a Board of Directors. We are accepting nominations for seven Board members. The nominations are open to all current, paid members who operate an agritourism operation in Florida. We encourage you to self nominate if you wish. A copy of our Bylaws are attached here. The nominating form may be found on our website, on the operator's side, or by going here. Nominations will close on July 13th.
Voting will run from August 8th through August 26th and we will be sending out an email to remind you to do so. We encourage all members to vote! If your dues are not current, please visit our website www.visitfloridafarms.com and renew today. Let your voice be heard as we continue to help you expand our agritourism industry in Florida.
We are planning our first Board of Directors meeting for the first week of September 2016 in Central Florida. Please make plans to attend!
