Virtual Annual Meeting – 2020

APRES #52
GOES VIRTUAL

2020 APRES Virtual Annual Meeting
July 14-16, 2020

APRES Members & Attendees,

The 2020 APRES Annual Meeting will go Virtual. The APRES Board of Directors and Program Committee reached this very difficult decision after monitoring the impact of COVID-19 over the past two months and discussing its potential effect on the health and safety of our members, sponsors, attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff.

The 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting will be a combination of live webinars and recorded sessions
of the almost full agenda of its live predecessor. The Production, Challenges, & Strategies themed General Session and a Symposium on Aflatoxin and Drought Tolerance live webinars are scheduled for July 14. The Joe Sugg Graduate Student Competition and Graduate Student Seminar live webinars will be held July 15 & 16. All other scientific presentations–research & education breakout sessions and posters– will be pre-recorded, hosted on the APRES youtube channel, and available for viewing at your leisure on July 14th. Year-end awards will be announced July 16th and a recognition ceremony will be held at the 2021 Annual Meeting.

Thank you to the APRES Board of Directors for their leadership, the 2020 Program Committee for their development of the virtual format for this year’s meeting, and the APRES membership for its commitment to this organization. We look forward to seeing you at the 2020 APRES Virtual Annual Meeting, July 14-16!

Stay safe and well,

Barry Tillman….and…….Gary Schwarzlose
