Throughout the four nations of the UK so far this year since April 2014, 37 new Associates (ARAgS) have been awarded and coincidentally 37 advancements to Fellowship (FRAgS) have been made plus one (exceptional ) direct election. Nobody applies to join but potential candidates recognised for their outstanding contributions to agricultural progress within the UK are invited to apply by the National Panel of CARAS in their UK nation of residence and objectively assessed. The quest for people worthy of such recognition is, like painting the Forth Road Bridge, a continual search. The resulting Body of almost 1200 members represents a dynamic pool of wide experience and independent thought for the public good of British Agriculture, UK Society – and beyond.
Meetings held recently in each of the four nations have seen new members and those newly advanced to Fellowship being presented with their certificates:-
2015 is the UN Year of the Soil – so watch this space! Since 2014 was the UN Year of the Family Farm, members considered the role of such farms – 500 million of 570 million farms worldwide:-
