NYWGF Strategic Planning Meeting

The New York Wine & Grape Foundation will be working with Farm Credit East consultants Nathan Rudgers and Gregg McConnell to complete a comprehensive strategic planning process for the organization. From these efforts, the Foundation hopes to learn more about critical issues facing the wine and grape community, discover new and innovative ways to assist in dealing with them, and broaden outreach to the community and its supporters.

The Farm Credit East consultant team will producer meetings across the state’s grape growing regions to understand the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats that New York’s wine and grape producers feel are facing their industry. Any grower and/or winery operator is welcome to attend these meetings.

The following meetings will be held in the Finger Lakes region, all of which will take place on Friday, February 2 in Jordan Hall at the Experiment Station in Geneva:

9:00-11:00 AM- Wine Grape Growers and Estate Wineries
1:00-3:00 PM -  Wineries
3:30-5:30 PM-  Juice Grape Growers
