05-03-2021 Hybrid Meeting Announcement

For those attending in person, the U.S. Grains Council will be following CDC, event location and OSHA guidelines. With that in mind, the Council will no longer require fully vaccinated individuals to wear face masks during the July Board of Delegates meeting and strongly encourage those who are not fully vaccinated to wear a face mask indoors. We do want to take steps to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our staff and members. Therefore, with assistance from in-house physicians, we will be conducting daily health screenings and temperature checks while continuing to provide space for social distancing within meeting rooms. Please note that some of our colleagues may choose to continue wearing a mask, even if they are fully vaccinated.

For those attending virtually, we will be using the Pathable platform again. This is the same platform we have used for past membership meetings and will be offering training ahead of the meeting to ensure an enjoyable online experience.

Everyone attending, either virtually or in-person, will need to sign a code of conduct and waiver which will become available after the final town hall, scheduled for July 8, 2021.

For questions, please contact Rebecca Kane, USGC meeting manager at rkane@grains.org.

* Please note that this meeting does not follow the usual conference schedule of Monday – Wednesday. This conference begins on a Wednesday and ends on a Friday.
