First AAA AGM in Tanzania
AAA Tanzania Chapter held their first AGM on 20th May 2015 at Kebby’s Hotel Dar-es-Salaam. 20 members participated with the Deputy Head of Mission from NL Embassy Ms. Hinke Nauta as the Guest of Honor. Among others were invited guests from SUA and PUM.
Officiating the meeting, Guest of honor Hinke Nauta, said her Embassy has been supporting AAA since its establishment and they are confident with the organization’s role in expanding and strengthening their role in the food- and agribusiness sector.
“We strongly support knowledge sharing for best practices, and we commend AAA for their drive of innovation because we believe agriculture development should not only focus on agriculture alone, but the whole value chain,” said Nauta.
Members discussed on membership fee payment and taking ownership of the BC activities as this will enable them to get the benefits they desire. To seal the discussion Ms. Dina Kikuli assistant BC Leader from Mbeya said “If you compare the costs we were to pay to consultants, it would have been more than what we can afford”
The annual general meeting also endorsed the new chairman elect, Mr Watanga Chacha Goryo who took over from the outgoing Chairman of AAA Tanzania Chapter, Mr. Sanford Kombe. In his speech Mr. Chacha requested members to be the changes they want to see in the Chapter.
