Reserve your hotel room by Tuesday, Jan. 14 for the once-a-year opportunity to meet with the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) international directors and hear about their work around the world during the 17th International Marketing Conference and 60th Annual Membership Meeting, scheduled for Feb. 12-14, in Tampa, Florida.
This meeting is Council members’ annual chance to meet face-to-face with USGC staff and consultants who cultivate and grow overseas markets for U.S. corn, barley, sorghum, ethanol, dried distiller’s grains with solubles (DDGS) and more. The organization’s Advisory Teams (A-Teams) will also help set priorities for the year ahead.
“Your direction will help us establish priorities in the coming year and incorporate them into the Council’s operational plans, including offering direction for the new Agricultural Trade Promotion – or ATP – programs the Council is undertaking to find and grow markets around the world,” said Darren Armstrong, USGC chairman and farmer from North Carolina, in a letter welcoming members to the meeting.
“I am proud of the work we continue to do. I am confident you will leave this meeting with a renewed dedication to the work that still remains to be done to make something happen for coarse grains and ethanol exports.”
Please note the days of the week for this meeting have shifted to begin Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2020, and end on Friday, Feb. 14, 2020.
Direct questions to Rebecca Kane, USGC meeting manager.
