The Canadian Bison Association (CBA) has chosen a familiar face for its president and board chair position for next year. At a board meeting held this past week, the CBA announced they’re re-electing Sharif Fahmy for the pair of positions. Fahmy has served as both president and board chair for the past three years.
“It is an honour and privilege for me to serve a fourth term as CBA board chair,” Sharif says in a news release. “Working with people that have a passion for the animal is very rewarding. The industry makes my role a pleasure as I work with like-minded people wanting to grow the industry while focusing on sustainability.”
Sharif raises bison in the interior of B.C. and markets animals to select clients in the Fraser Valley.
Also elected to the executive committee were Les Kroeger, from Saskatchewan, as vice-chair, Jean-Luc Chouinard, from Quebec ,as the east zone representative, and Glenn Kjemhus, from Alberta, as the west zone representative.
The CBA represents the interests of the bison industry and its 550 members across Canada.
