The Summer Board meeting of the Southern Cotton Growers and Southeastern Cotton Ginners Associations has been cancelled. The officers of each organization met jointly yesterday and came to the conclusion that an in-person meeting just would not be prudent given the state of the pandemic. The meeting was scheduled to be in Panama City Beach, FL in mid-July and with the spike in positive tests in Florida and the fact that the accommodations the hotel was able to provide changed often, the officers knew there was no way to have a functional meeting in that environment.
Both organizations will have online versions of some, if not all, of their meetings but it just won’t be the same. We know some non-board members and associate members were planning on attending this year’s meeting and we apologize for the inconvenience. Understand this decision was not made lightly. We will not be cancelling any reservations if you had planned on coming. You must cancel your rooms yourself. Thank you for your understanding and give us a call if you have any questions.
