Alabama Crop Management Association
Notes from the Director’s’ Chair:
Greetings to all from your director. The summer of 2017 is rapidly passing by. Before we know it, school will be starting and football season will be here. Along with that, the harvest season will begin. Hopefully, crops will continue to receive the rain it needs and everyone will harvest bumper crops. But, in this business, we understand that we still have a long way to go, and things can change in a hurry.
Our ACMA Summer Meeting in June went very well, even though we were in Orange Beach during a tropical storm. It rained and the wind blew endlessly. We had to cancel all outdoor activities like the 5K Run and the Golf Tournament. Even the trip to Waterville was replaced by a trip to Adventure Island because they had indoor games and rides, etc.
Everyone seemed to take it all in stride and enjoy themselves anyway. Plus, we had an excellent program of speakers to listen to and learn from.
This was our first year at the Perdido Beach Resort and they had a lot to offer which helped us endure the weather. The ACMA Board voted to have the 2018 Summer Meeting there too.
Thanks to all of you that came and participated this year. I hope more of you will come next year.
See you at the Winter Meeting in Auburn, AL, December 4, 5, 6, 2017.
Thanks for all you do for Alabama Agriculture!
ACMA Executive Director
