If you haven’t already registered for this year’s CSGA Annual General Meeting, I encourage you to do so by June 1, 2017, to benefit from our “Early Bird” rates. This year’s event is being held in Halifax, Nova Scotia from July 10th to 13th. We have an exciting program that includes updates and working sessions on our new strategic priorities, including Circular 6 Modernization, the Seed Grower Professional Development Project, Phase 2 of the Seed Synergy Collaboration and other important initiatives, both planned and underway.

In addition to hosting a joint welcome reception and dinner with the Canadian Seed Trade Association (CSTA), the CSGA has planned an interlocking business program with the CSTA, ensuring that those registered for both events are able to participate fully in the best that both programs have to offer.

This said we will also be having fun! Halifax is a very easy city to explore on foot, with its extensive boardwalk which starts close to our meeting hotel (Westin Nova Scotian) and winds along the waterfront to the downtown area. It is also a city rich with history, with many attractions and our program is designed to allow you to experience the best it has to offer.

So please, come join us at this year’s CSGA summer meeting, mingle with fellow CSGA growers and others from the Canadian seed industry family and take in a fun East Coast program that will surely enchant you and your family!

CSGA President
