The Agri-Commodity Management Association was formed in 2010 as a result of more than two years of strategic planning between Pork Nova Scotia (PNS), the Nova Scotia Cattle Producers (NSCP), the Sheep Producers Association of Nova Scotia (SPANS), the Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture (NSFA) and the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture (NSDA).
All of these groups realized the importance of professional and administrative support for small commodity groups in the Province. By working through ACMA, the member organizations can move forward without relying solely on the volunteers of their Boards.
The mandate of ACMA is to...
“provide efficient and effective administration and professional support to the agriculture community commodity groups in Nova Scotia.”
While each of the commodity groups work with ACMA to reduce administrative overhead, reduce and eliminate duplicate functions, and form synergies by sharing information, all groups remain autonomous.
