Agrimarketing : March 2008
18 AgriMarketing March 2008 CAMA Ontario is looking for- ward to delivering informative events and networking oppor- tunities for its members. We are con- tinuing to use the theme "Count Me In" to foster new memberships that will build a bigger and stronger association. CAMA Spring Social -- April 2, 2008 Growing the Margins: Energy Conservation and Generation for Farms and Food Processors Confer- ence and Exhibition, will be present- ing two guided tours of new leading edge technologies and processes. REMEMBERING GINTY In January, CAMA lost one of its influential members, Ginty Jocius, after a two year battle with brain cancer. We asked some of our members to share their per- sonal memories of Ginty: "During a pitch for the Sandoz account, the client wanted to come out to Guelph to see the agency. Ginty was friends with the mayor of Guelph at the time, John Counsell. "Ginty persuaded John to greet the clients at their car when they arrived, John, a very wry Brit (think of a calmer version of James Shaw) immediately went into a sales pitch about Guelph, Ginty, the agency and why Sandoz should work with Ginty Jocius and Associates. "It was definitely a memorable moment for the client, and myself. A great example of Ginty's 'think big' philosophy." --- Len Kahn, Marketing 911 "I remember meeting Ginty for the first time as a Student CAMA member while attending University of Guelph. As the founding sponsor for the CAMA stu- dent chapter at U of G he was very inter- ested in the project we had taken on. "The CAMA student team was always grateful for the input and support that was given by Ginty and his crew at GJA Communications. Many students have and will continue to enhance their U of G experience by participating in the CAMA Student Chapter thanks to Ginty's vision for the students." --- Denise Hockaday, Monsanto Canada Inc. "From when I first met Ginty as a field representative (early '80s) getting my feet wet in the seed business, I was impressed with the time Ginty took with the inexperienced and new individuals to first ask how things were going, learn about the past and then explain what he or his team were trying to accomplish. "After the first meeting, you did not hesitate to work with Ginty because you knew he understood what everyone was working to accomplish. I have not met an individual since, that understood the benefit of taking the extra steps like Ginty did for success." --- Colin Smith, Hyland Seeds GINTY CONTINUES TO SUPPORT CAMA STUDENTS AT NAMA The Ginty Jocius "Journey of Growth" Fund at the University of Guelph was set up to complement the University's existing Access travel fund that the CAMA students use to compete each year at the NAMA competition. Ginty felt strongly that agricultural students needed to have more education and experience in the area of marketing and communications and the NAMA competition was a wonderful oppor- tunity to instill that type of knowl- edge in young people.
