Proposals for the Future: July 2024

As part of its civic commitment, CAF will present proposals to the next government in July 2024. This event, which has become a reference in the public agenda during electoral periods, will reflect CAF's internal reflection and contribution to the political debate on the agricultural sector.

40th Anniversary Book Launch: September or October 2024

In the fall of 2024, CAF will launch a book documenting the history of agricultural cooperativism in Uruguay. With 40 short stories about the federation and its member cooperatives, the book seeks to bring agricultural cooperativism closer to society in general, highlighting the principles and values that distinguish CAF. The launching event will bring together members, agricultural and cooperative sector leaders, as well as the media.

Year-End Closing and Future Outlook: December 10, 2024

The year-end Board of Directors meeting, scheduled for December 10, 2024, will be the last anniversary celebration.

The closing of the year will be attended by national authorities, including the President of the Republic, Luis Lacalle Pou, underlining the importance of the dialogue between the government and the cooperative sector.
