The North American Strawberry Growers Association and the North American Raspberry and Blackberry Association will meet together on December 4th for a reception and will hold joint and concurrent educational sessions on Monday December 5th at the Amway Grand Plaza in Grand Rapids Michigan.
On Tuesday December 6th both NASGA and NARBA will hold sessions focusing on raspberry and strawberry as part of the Great Lakes Fruit, Vegetable and Farm Market EXPO.
You are invited to submit a proposal on strawberry research for consideration by NASGA. Included with this message are guidelines for you or others at your institution, to submit proposals for our 2016 funding decisions. Please forward this invitation to your colleagues in plant pathology, entomology and weed science. NASGA supports research in strawberry production that will benefit its grower members.
Hotels will sell out so please make a reservation today! You can always cancel your room if you choose not to attend. NASGA’s meeting will be December 5-6, 2016 and the Great Lakes EXPO will run from December 6-8, 2016.
The EXPO books nearly all the rooms in the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel and has large room blocks at the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown and the JW Marriott. In previous years these hotels have been sold out as early as September 1st.

NASGA has developed a scholarship program for both new and young members as well as young researcher/extension personnel.
The goal of this scholarship is to respond to the generational change amongst the membership as well as entrance of new growers. We believe NASGA’s greatest assets are the summer tour and winter meeting and the friendly and open networking that takes place during these events. The idea is to get people to see the value of membership by experiencing it.
Scholarship Application Deadlines:
Summer Tour Quebec City, Quebec May 31, 2016
Winter Grand Rapids, Michigan September 15, 2016
