FMNZ 2009 Market Managers Forum, Hamilton 22nd-24th June

2009 Market Managers Forum 

The Market Managers Forum is a chance for managers from around the country to get together and share ideas, tools, solutions to issues, and to network with others, so that managers can feel comfortable sharing ideas with each other in the future.  There will be guest speakers from America and Australia, information from FMNZ, and time to problem solve on any issues that are common to farmers' markets.    To be held June 22nd to 24th, 2009, the forum will be based at Pirongia Forest Park Lodge, in Pirongia near Hamilton.  Food will be provided, and alcohol will only be permitted on the final evening.  For more information email kerryn at secretary@farmersmarkets.org.nz or visit www.farmersmarkets.org.nz
