During the past two decades, DiMenna has served in numerous roles at CPMA, and is currently a member of the Produce Traceability Initiative leadership council.
“PTI is really starting to ramp up for 2012,” DiMenna said.
“CPMA needs to be the place members come to get information, and we have to support our members to make sure they’re in compliance and reaching their milestones,” he said.
As for Calgary, DiMenna is happy this year’s spotlight will be on outgoing chairman Tom Byttynen.
It gives him plenty of time to work on his 2013 speech for Toronto where the theme, appropriately enough, will be Fresh Success.
