NAFEX Annual Meeting 2015
July 22 thru 24, 2015
Days Inn, LaCrosse, Wisconsin

Present agenda:

  • The Board meeting will be held Wednesday evening, July 22, followed by an informal social for early arrivals who are not too tired from the travels. Registration will begin Thursday morning. Papers and talks will be presented on Thursday, followed by an auction that evening and show and tell, with PowerPoint projector available. The field tour on Friday includes bottled water and lunch, followed that evening by the banquet and business meeting.
  • Plan to bring something for the auction as this is a great way to have fun while raising needed funds our treasury.
  • Wine tasting of member-supplied wines and cash bar before the banquet.
  • Home-made cookies containing fruits and nuts can be served at the coffee breaks.
  • The Local Arrangements Committee is working hard to make this an educational as well as entertaining event. We plan to have activities on Thursday for accompanying family members not interested in the fruit and nut events.
  • Registration form is available at the bottom of this page.

We have 20 and 30 minute time slots for speakers. PowerPoint projection will be available. Member growers are often shy about making presentations. Don't be! In a survey a few years ago many members said they desire home grower reports as well as the research reports given by University and USDA professionals. Contact Bob Purvis, program chair, at or Peter Scott at or Jerry Lehman at to make arrangements. Outside speakers who are not attending the conference are invited to participate in the noon lunch.
