Welcome to our newest Cambassador!
It’s tough to find someone in the Canadian agriculture marketing biz who doesn’t know Lillie Ann Morris. Born in the USA, Kentucky farm girl Lillie Ann has had a long-standing impact on agriculture north of the border, holding advertising sales positions with Public Press (owned by United Grain Growers at the time to rep Country Guide and Canadian Cattlemen), Top Crop Manager, and Farm Business Communications (where she is currently an ad sales consultant for Country Guide, Farmtario and Le Bulletin des agriculteurs). Lillie Ann proudly calls Ontario home and is well known for her relentless drive to build relationships with key players across the entire Canadian agricultural scene, especially organizations that favour care of the soil.
It’s no surprise that Lillie Ann received the CAMA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017. Lillie Ann first joined CAMA in 1976 and on the board by 1978. Her positive attitude breathed new life into the group and she was instrumental in growing CAMA across the country. In 1983, Lillie Ann served as the first female CAMA president, where she worked to bring us the very first “Best of CAMA” awards, which are still running today.
Lillie Ann has never stopped promoting agriculture and supporting the younger generation – through partnerships with AgScape, Ag In The Classroom-Canada, 4-H Canada and the University of Guelph’s CAMA Student Chapter. Lillie Ann attends as many CAMA events as possible and is now joining our Cambassador program.
Welcome, Lillie Ann! We’re looking forward to having you as a part of our Cambassador team.
