30 Jun MyTRI 203 Ag Council Update
By the time the Ag Council held its first meeting of the year at the end of March, we were just starting to see the enormity of what lay ahead. As many of the members of the committee are in essential industries, and were in the midst of identifying completely new ways to keep food on the shelves of America’s grocery stores, the group decided to pause our myTRI 2030 efforts and meet the COVID-19 challenge at hand.
As we now roll through the mid-year, the group looks to come together (socially distanced and virtual of course) to jumpstart our myTRI 2030 efforts. The challenge is much greater now, as we look to rebuild a growing, processing and logistics system stressed by the past two months. We believe that myTRI 2030 will provide the roadmap for recovery and resiliency, and that as we move forward, we will identify opportunities to increase prosperity across the Tri-Cities.
