Farm Credit Canada Recognizes Women Leaders in Agriculture with Annual Award

FCC Seeking Nominations for 2013 Rosemary Davis Award

By , Farms.com

Farm Credit Canada (FCC) is now accepting nominations for its 2013 Rosemary Davis Award, which recognizes five women across the country who’ve shown leadership and commitment to Canadian agriculture. 

The award was created in 2005 to honour FCC’s first female board chair. Previous winners range from primary producers, teachers, veterinarians, researchers, agrologists, and business leaders just to name a few. The winners of the award are chosen based on a number of factors including career achievements, leadership, community involvement, and most importantly their passion for the agricultural industry.

The winners will enjoy a paid trip to Boston to attend the 2013 Simmons School of Management’s leadership conference, where they will get the chance to network with highly accomplished women. Every winner will also receive a hand-blown glass statuette as a keepsake. 

Information about the award or information about the nomination process can be found at www.fccrosemarydavisaward.ca. Nominations are accepted until January 15th, 2013. The winners will be announced in March.
