AgConnectWA will welcome the assimilation of the membership of Harvest Young Agri Food Professionals Group (Harvest) at a sundowner next month.
To celebrate and formally recognise the merger, a sundowner will be held on Friday 17 June at The Byrneleigh in Nedlands, which all AgConnectWA and Harvest members are invited to attend.
AgConnectWA was approached earlier this year regarding the assimilation of Harvest’s membership, after the latter recognised that it was not worth competing for a similar market.
AgConnectWA President Kallum Blake welcomed the merger, stating the new members would bring fresh ideas and approaches to the group.
“Harvest have done some great work in the professional development space, and we look forward to growing this further within AgConnectWA,” Mr Blake said.
Harvest President Justin Laycock said the group recognised what AgConnectWA was achieving for young professionals in agriculture.
“We believe by rolling Harvest into AgConnectWA, there will be a more coordinated approach towards personal and professional development for young people involved in WA agriculture, and that our members will receive greater exposure to an extensive and growing network which fosters long term relationships,” Mr Laycock said.
