CropLife America (CLA), The Fertilizer Institute (TFI) and the Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) will be co-locating their offices to Arlington, Va., beginning in January 2021. Each organization will retain its focus on the needs of its respective members, but the move is expected to create greater opportunities for collaboration that can enhance each organization’s efficiency and effectiveness. The organizations’ respective Boards of Directors approved this concept in separate votes last fall.
“ARA’s members have identified the need to continually be more efficient with organizational resources,” said ARA President and CEO Daren Coppock. “By sharing an office space with CLA and TFI, we are able to be good stewards of our assets while applying cost savings to better serve our members through the work we do on their behalf.”
All three organizations will remain independent with no changes to their individual governance models. TFI and CLA intend to relocate by January 2021, ARA intends to move March 2021.
