Dear Friends,

More than 470 seed industry professionals from across the nation gathered in Portland, Oregon, June 18-22 for a joint Annual Convention of the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) and the Oregon Seed Association.  This was the highest Annual Convention attendance since 2007 (including the 2008 convention which was ASTA’s 125th anniversary!).

Photos from the week are available for download on the ZimmComm Flickr page. To listen to on-site interviews with ASTA leadership and convention speakers, visit the AgWired site.

The shared values amongst our diverse memberships  is our biggest asset.  We have a historic opportunity to collectively roll up our sleeves as representatives of all segments of our industry and discuss issues and develop policy initiatives for the entire industry.

If you attended the convention and haven’t yet filled out the post-convention survey, please take a few minutes to do so here.  Your feedback is extremely valuable in our future planning efforts.

Thanks, again, to all of the ASTA-OSA Annual Convention sponsors!
