MESSAGE FROM THE 20TH CONGRESS PRESIDENT: WELCOME TO QUEBEC CITY
GaƩtan Lussier, Chairman of the organizing committee - IFMA20

We have the pleasure and the honour to invite you to the very beautiful City of Quebec from July 12th to July 17th 2015.

You will be amongst leading-edge representatives from approximately 30 countries worldwide.

For this edition of the International Farm Management Congress, we have chosen a theme that is fundamentally important to the entire world: Healthy Agriculture for a Healthy World. With an increasing world population, an agricultural sector that is in good financial health, economically viable, environmentally sustainable and capable of supplying the necessary components for a healthy diet, will be crucial for our future.

Agriculture can contribute significantly to the health of our society. As we move forward, facing many challenges and much opportunity, we must consider the role of farmers and all of the players within our industry in contributing to a healthy world.

We guarantee that the Congress will provide a very stimulating program, and we are confident that you will be inspired, both during the congress, through the exchanges you will have with other delegates and speakers, and after the congress, through your work and your actions upon your return home.

In the name of the organizing committee that I have the privilege to chair, I wish to extend my most cordial invitation to you.

We welcome you to the 20th International Farm Management Congress with the certainty that you will experience an unforgettable week.

Gaétan Lussier
Chairman of the IFMA20 Organizing Committee
 
MESSAGE FROM IFMA’S PRESIDENT:
COME JOIN US IN CANADA
Trevor Atkinson, IFMA Chairman

Our good friends from Canada have invited IFMA to hold its 20th Congress in the beauty and warmth of Quebec City. It is with the greatest of pleasure that IFMA accept this invitation and with the greatest of confidence that we look forward to what will be a rather special congress.

As always, I look forward to the key note speakers from around the world and also the opportunity provided via field trips to look at the practicalities of local farming and associated agribusiness.  I congratulate the IFMA20 team on their choice of congress theme ‘Healthy Agriculture for a Healthy World’ and welcome the ensuing debates. Internally our agriculture industry needs to be healthy in both mind and body. Externally, it needs to be sustainable and healthy for our responsibility to wider society. As we balance day to day pressures and the commercial realities of life, this theme is both timely and challenging.

IFMA congresses are always warm and friendly and uniquely encompass a wide range of people from a wide range of agricultural activities. As a congress participant, you have the opportunity to meet with practical farmers, academics, researchers, advisors and consultants; all of whom are keen to share their agricultural interest and exchange experience. As you listen, contemplate, participate and socialise, I guarantee there will be some new line of thinking from IFMA20 that you will develop and use in your ongoing business or working environment.
Whatever your agricultural interest, I invite you to join the IFMA family in Quebec and take part in ‘Healthy’ discussion and debate. I also extend a warm invite to accompanying persons who make a very valuable contribution to the friendliness of the congress.

Having visited Quebec, I am sure its rich history, fine cuisine and warm hospitality will make for a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

See you in Quebec !

Mr. Trevor Atkinson, FRAgS
President of IFMA
