NSA Central Region - Annual Members Meeting

Date: 24th January 2018

Time: 7pm

Location: Wednesday 24th January.

New faces, young and old, joined NSA Central Region for its Annual Members Meeting on Wednesday evening. Formal business ensued and resulted in office holder positions remaining as they are for the coming year.

An interesting discussion from a number of speakers followed, including NSA Chief Executive Phil Stocker and NSA Next Generation Ambassadors Fred Love (2016 intake) and Matt Haydon (2017 intake).

Phil reports: “It was fantastic to see this evening so well attended, particularly notable was the number of younger people in the audience who were warmly welcomed by all. We enjoyed hearing from Fred and Matt who each spoke on their experiences as NSA Next Generation Ambassadors and how they have applied skills and knowledge gained from this in their own farming system and it served as a timely reminder of the value and importance NSA’s Next Generation work provides to young sheep farmers. I also took the opportunity to update the audience on NSA’s current and ongoing work, talking in detail on the threats and opportunities Brexit in particular. A welcome and enjoyable supper of three different lamb dishes then rounded off the evening nicely.”
