During the AGM, CASA introduced two newly elected board members who “will play crucial roles in advancing the organization’s mission,” notes a press release. CASA welcomes Shelley Kirychuk (Canadian Centre for Rural and Agricultural Health) and Trevor Whalley (AgSafe BC) to its Board of Directors.  

CASA also announces its new executive team. Peter Sykanda (Ontario Federation of Agriculture), is the newly appointed chair. Jonathan Giret (Elite Agri Solutions Inc.) has taken on the role of vice-chair, Shelley Kirychuk takes on the role of secretary, and Bruce James (AGI) assumes the responsibilities of treasurer.
