FINE Appoints Eight New Network Advisory Council Members
Farm to Institution New England (FINE) advisors and staff are delighted to announce that eight new members have joined our Network Advisory Council, bringing us to a total of 18 council members.
FINE’s Network Advisory Council serves as our overarching governing body and acts as the eyes and ears in all facets of farm to institution work in the region. We were impressed by the strong response to our call for new members, which resulted in a challenging selection process.
The new cohort includes leaders from across the region with experience in all institutional sectors and links in the supply chain, as well as government, research, consulting, and nonprofit management.
We're looking forward to joining together for our annual summer work retreat with staff and Network Advisory Council members on July 18-19 at the AMC Highland Center Lodge in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
