MILLEN, GA - A meeting of the minds is not to be underestimated in this industry. One such brainstorming session recently took place, as the Southeast Produce Council (SEPC) hosted its annual summer board meeting. It was held July 18–20 in Charlotte, North Carolina, where Southern Innovations will be taking place in less than two months.
“The achievements this outstanding group of industry leaders can accomplish together never cease to amaze me!” said Tim Graas, Chairman of the Board for the Southeast Produce Council and Executive Director of Produce for Associated Wholesale Grocers. “Our primary focus has been strategically planning for the future, ensuring we continue to offer industry-leading experiences and the most innovative networking and educational sessions. Not to mention staying hyper-focused on giving back to the communities in which we serve. Thank you to the entire group, whose tireless efforts have provided a future-focused plan—Together We Grow Higher.”
During the meeting, SEPC’s Board of Directors, Board of Governors, Board Ambassadors, and staff discussed several strategic goals and tactics. According to a press release, SEPC Committee Chairs each gave their reports regarding all of the NICE aspects of the Council (Networking, Innovation, Community, Education), providing a brief synopsis on committee initiatives.
After this initial brainstorming session, board members rolled up their sleeves and put on their thinking caps as they engaged in round table discussions, delving into strategies and tactics to futureproof the council through their strategic initiative work.
