For 85 years GROWMARK has been a cooperative members could count on and they exhibited that through the theme for the 2012 GROWMARK Annual Meeting, Pride and Progress.
Dan Kelley, Chairman of the Board and President of GROWMARK, explained what pride and progress means to him and how the drought has and will continue to affect GROWMARK’s members.
“We are proud of our history. We are proud of the people who work with us. We are proud of our heritage, but we are also progressing. The last eight years have been the best in GROWMARK’s history in both sales and in a net income standpoint. We know agriculture, like all businesses, change and the speed of change increases everyday. We have to have great people to adjust to those changes and that is how we are going to progress.”
