“I’m keen to ensure we have good communication with all members, including those
who are just coming into the industry.
“One thing I’d like to ensure is that we are able to contact everyone who’s active in a farm business – sometimes we only have one e-mail address and information might not get passed on.
“On the whole, we get it right most of the time. Texting is a good, quick way of keeping in contact with our members, but there’s always more we can do.
“Having our new county adviser, Andrew Wilson, working across the two Lincolnshire county branches means we can be responsive and coordinated in membership communications and representing members’ views across the sectors.
“The new county connection plan is an important tool in ensuring we include as many members as possible in the NFU’s work and membership benefits.”
