    Potato Association of America Meeting Goes Virtual Again


    The Potato Association of America (PAA) will be hosting its annual meeting virtually again this year, the group says in a Twitter post on Jan. 28.

    The annual meeting was supposed to be held on July 25 to 29 in Charlottetown, P.E.I., but due to the ongoing pandemic the board made the decision to host the conference virtually. The conference will now be held virtually on July 26 to 29.

    This will be the second time the PAA meeting will be held virtually. Last year the conference went virtual for the first time due to the pandemic. The meeting had been planned to be held in-person in Missoula, Mont.

    Abstract submissions for this year’s meeting are open online until April 2.
