Potato Association of America 2020 Meeting Going Virtual

-

After previously cancelling the in-person meeting which was to be held in Missoula, Mont., the Potato Association of America (PAA) will be holding its annual meeting virtually on July 20 to 22, the PAA website says.

The virtual meeting is a “scaled-down” version and will cost a flat rate of US$50. Graduate student registration is complimentary and sponsored by IDAHO 2018 LAC. The meeting will feature a mix of research and grower orientated sessions.

For more information about the meeting, including the itinerary and registration visit the PAA meeting website.

Planning is still underway for the 2021 meeting in Charlottetown, P.E.I. from July 25 to 29, while Missoula will now host the 2022 meeting on July 17 to 21.
