The board of directors of Manitoba Ag Days would like to congratulate Kristen Phillips on her recognition as an Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture (IWCA). Kristen leads our organization with such class, dedication and determination. Kristen is the type of person who pushes each of us to be out of the box thinkers but reigns us back into reality as required. We are so thankful that she made the decision to take on the general manager role with us in 2016.
