90th Annual Meeting Sponsors Deserve Your Continued Support in 2016

Our 90th Annual Meeting held this past November was a productive, elegant and memorable event. Much work goes into preparing the meeting, and a great deal of the meeting’s success is owed to our sponsors. Over the course of the year, Western Growers likes to remind members about those companies who acted as sponsors and without whose generosity and support, the meeting would not have been possible. 

As we have done in the past, we ask that you continue to say, ‘Thank you!’ to those who supported the Annual Meeting by using our sponsors’ professional business products and services in 2016. When you do contact them for your needs, let them know you appreciate their sponsorship.

Note: We have separated our sponsors into ‘industry categories’ and have also included their sponsorship level for your convenience. If you have any questions, please contact Randy Hause at (949) 885-2365.
