What does Ag Women Manitoba Do? Our mission is simply this: "Connecting, supporting, and fostering growth for women in Manitoba’s diverse agricultural community" We are focused on building women from the ground up, not the top down, in order for them to achieve success - in what ever form that might look to her. We are a brand-new provincial non-profit organization that is gathering for the very first time - April 5th - in Winnipeg (Don't worry, we'll be heading to Brandon next month to meet up with you wounderful western MB women). Our Event: We are starting our meeting off with a guided tour, thanks to our fantastic host, MacDon Industries. Then, we will gather to brainstorm and talk about what YOU would like to see Ag Women Manitoba do, what skills you would like to enhance for your resume, or what Ag Women Manitoba can do to help you grow in agriculture.

Following that discussion, we will be starting the meeting portion of our event at 5:00pm where we introduce part of our board to you. The other part of our board? We'll be taking nominations at the meeting for the following 2 year-term positions: Secretary Communication/Social Media Membership Events Once that business is taken care of, we'll head to a local fine food establishment for some celebratory food and beverages and a bit of networking - at your own pace*.
