On August 16th we officially wrapped up a full season of celebrating our customer-owners with the final installment of our annual customer appreciation events. The Burlington event in August has been known to be one of the largest and this year did not disappoint. In attendance, we had nearly 300 people that came together to celebrate the cooperative model that is Farm Credit.
This month we also held our annual board and management strategic planning meeting in Colorado Springs. This meeting is our chance to discuss our long-term strategic vision for the Farm Credit System, Farm Credit of Southern Colorado, and our customer-owners. Our board continues to be a very strategic group focusing on the future. At our meetings this month, we discussed how to continue growing our local support of communities and organizations we serve. We also discussed the strength of our relationships with our borrowers and how to continue expanding those relationships and building on that strength.
I am continuously reminded of what a unique and special structure we have here at Farm Credit of Southern Colorado. Our cooperative structure and the value our shareholder-elected directors add to our governance and direction are unmatched. We are better equipped to serve the long-term interests of farmers and ranchers with our structure than any other lender in agriculture. Thank you for your continued business!
Farm Credit of Southern Colorado CEO
