I haven’t heard any discussion of the annual meeting since our South Africa plan was vetoed. I think we are all expecting to have an in-person meeting at a location where we have the opportunity to see some interesting, relevant horticulture operations. It is getting late in the federal fiscal year and we need to decide on a location very soon.

My 2 cents- it is too late to combine with Cultivate or ASHS.

Usually the chair hosts the meeting in their state and often organizes a grower conference before or after the meeting to take advantage of the expertise of the visiting members.
