2011 Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth
In June 2011, Charlie Smith led the Chiefs’ Executive Forum Design Workshop at the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth.
The Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth (RASC.) is a confederation of over 50 leading national and regional Agricultural Show Societies, Agricultural Associations and Research Bodies working in 20 Commonwealth countries.
Founded in 1957 by our President, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh KG KT, and 12 international Agricultural Societies at the Royal Norfolk Show, the initial aim was to promote the work of Agricultural Show Societies by providing a network/forum for discussion of latest ideas and experiences.
The RASC is the Commonwealth Civil Society representing agriculture. Today, the Society has widened its horizons and through our Member Societies promotes the development of both Show Societies and best practice farming, improving the incomes and the production of food in Commonwealth Countries. We are the voice of agriculture in the Commonwealth and continue to work closely with the Commonwealth Secretariat and its associated bodies.
