Guelph, ON – Ontario Corn Producers’ Association (OCPA) welcomes new staff support in research & technology and communications.


Crosby Devitt, Research Manager for Ontario Soybean Growers (OSG) and Ontario Wheat Producers’ Marketing Board (OWPMB) will incorporate OCPA research into his job description. Lisa McLean, Communications Manager for Ontario Grains & Oilseeds, will expand her role to include OCPA communications. Erin Fletcher, Stakeholder Relations Manager for OWPMB will incorporate responsibilities for the Ontario Corn Producer Magazine into her existing duties.


"We welcome Lisa, Crosby, and Erin to the OCPA team, and are delighted that we have the opportunity to increase efficiencies by sharing staff resources with our two partner organizations," says Ryan Brown, General Manager of Ontario Corn Producers’ Association (OCPA). "All three of these individuals already work closely with OCPA; they each bring a great deal of skill and experience to the table."


OCPA, OSG, and OWPMB have shared office space since 2005, and in 2004 the three organizations signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to pursue the formation of one organization representing Ontario corn, soybean and wheat producers.
