'Advisory Boards: Building the Ideal Farm Management Team' 
- January 29, 2016

Exploring what an advisory board can bring to a farm business, this workshop is designed to include BOTH farmers and potential advisory board directors. The intent is to include both farmers and advisory board directors in an interactive setting, providing them with an opportunity to learn how an advisory board works and how to participate in one.

Here is some of the feedback received so far:
"Clear understanding of Advisory Board roles and benefits for both the farmer and Board member."
"Increased my understanding of how Advisory Boards work and their value to our farm."

Backswath Women in Ag Peer Group Workshop
- November 15, 2015
Backswath is offering an opportunity for women, attending the Manitoba Farm Women's Conference to connect through an informal, interactive discussion with their peers about setting personal, and business goals. Women can share insight on the challenges and opportunities they face in agriculture across the province. The goals they set can then be used as a foundation, built upon, and expanded through information presented during the rest of the conference.
