"I have been a CAFA member of the Walkerton, Ontario chapter for several years. Networking with the professionals is worth its weight in gold. I have established relationships with the local professionals who have participated in numerous farm succession planning seminars/workshops. I have also established relationships with members of the London chapter, John Uren and Betty Hansen. Being able to identify myself as a CAFA member and working with other CAFA members has helped me grow and expand my succession planning career. Working with the various members helps give me that extra edge when working with farm families. These relationships build a strong farm advisory team for me to count on, it develops integrity and creditability. Clients appreciate the fact that I have a team of qualified professionals supporting me as we work together, doing what is in the best interest of the clients while figuring out the plan that works for them and gets the job done."
