Maui is a magical place, and we feel fortunate to be hosting the 94th Western Growers Annual Meeting at the picturesque, family-friendly Wailea Beach Marriott Resort from November 10th – 13th, 2019. We invite you to join your Board of Directors, fellow members, and industry partners in this yearly celebration of the fresh produce industry. Over the years, the Western Growers Annual Meeting has become synonymous with education, friendship, and fun. We are honored to carry forward that tradition this year in Hawaii, and pledge to provide relevant and informative workshops, memorable venues and events, and top-notch motivational and entertaining speakers to help commemorate our collective successes as an industry.
The Award of Honor event is always a highlight of the Annual Meeting and we urge you to watch the Western Growers Spotlight for information about this year’s Award of Honor Honoree.
The purpose of the Western Growers Annual Meeting is to serve the members and connect with our partners. It is your participation that makes the Annual Meeting the great event that it is. For our association, and our industry, the whole is undeniably greater than the sum of the parts. We all understand the challenges facing our individual businesses and the efforts that go into carrying our family farming legacies into the next generation. These obstacles will be overcome through us coming together, forming common bonds, and uniting behind shared purposes. The Western Growers Annual Meeting provides the perfect forum to achieve that mission.
Please join Catharine and I as we strive to build a stronger and more unified future for the fresh produce industry. We look forward to seeing you and enjoying your company in Hawaii!
Ron and Catharine Ratto
