The Virginia State Horticultural Society will hold its annual membership meeting at The Mid-Atlantic Fruit and Vegetable Convention in Hershey, PA. on Thursday morning at 7:30 a.m. in the Cocoa Suites (lower level). All Virginia fruit producers are encouraged to attend.
Mark Sutphin (VCE-Frederick County) has obtained approval for Virginia private pesticide applicator re-certification credits (full 90 and partial 91) for meeting attendees. The approval is for Categories: 1-A, 3-A, 4, 10, and 60. Once at the conference, please seek out Mark for paperwork and instructions (due to the size of the conference the process is more complex than usual). To receive recertification credits, paperwork must be completed at both the beginning and the end of the conference.
Mark will spend much of the conference at the Virginia State Horticultural Society table. If you cannot find him there, you may track him down on his cell phone 540.398.8148.
Feel free to contact Mark with any questions regarding Virginia pesticide applicator re-certification at the MAFVC.
The full program for the MAFVC can be viewed at their website.
