March 31, 2020: After careful consideration, we today announce the cancellation of the ASTA Policy & Leadership Development Conference / AOSA-SCST Annual Meeting due to multiple factors related to the coronavirus global pandemic.
In 2020, ASTA's Policy & Leadership Development Conference (PLDC) will bring its policy and educational efforts together with a key group that influences the operations of any seed company - those who analyze and test seed quality. The Association of Official Seed Analysts and the Society of Commercial Seed Technologists will hold their Annual Meeting in conjunction with the PLDC, offering several opportunities for connection and collaboration between these two important organizations.
Seed companies, meet seed testing professionals.
The conference agenda for 2020 will offer several familiar sessions for each organization, such as ASTA's sessions on trade, innovation, domestic and international policy and leadership development, and AOSA's series of training sessions and workshops. But this year is also different - with multiple networking opportunities including general sessions, social events and a special Connections Forum that will provide double the value for attendees.
