The National Farmers Union has rescheduled its annual meeting from March 24 until the last day of the month.

The meeting, which begins at 10 a.m., will be held at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Charlottetown. The morning session will feature the business meeting and an address from National Women's President, Coral Sproule. A representative from the Worker’s Compensation Board will also be on hand to talk about coverage available to the agricultural community.

Agriculture and Forestry Minister George Webster will be the speaker during the noon luncheon. The afternoon session begins with the keynote address on trade issues with Scott Sinclair from the Canadian Center for Policy Alternatives.

The afternoon session will also deal with resolutions, the election of officers and a presentation on the recently announced Farmland Financing program. Reg Phalen, who represents the province on the national board of directors, will also address the meeting and help swear in the new executive.

In the event of inclement weather, the meeting will be held April 2 at the same location.
