The ADGA Annual Convention Committee, in coordination with the ADGA Board of Directors, regrets to announce that the 2020 Annual Convention for October 5-11 in Syracuse, New York is being cancelled. The American Goat Cheese Championship, American Goat Milk Bath & Body Championship, the much-anticipated Spotlight Sale dairy goat auction, and all other events held in conjunction with Annual Convention will be cancelled.
The ADGA Annual Board of Directors Meeting to be held October 6-7 is NOT being cancelled. The ADGA Executive Committee is considering options for ADGA members to observe this meeting remotely.
Uncertainty regarding the timing of travel and gathering restrictions being lifted as well as concern for the safety of convention participants and vendors were of significant concern. While ADGA risks the loss of revenue by not holding the Annual Convention and related events, the risk to those attending was deemed more important.
Mark your calendars now for Annual Convention November 8-14, 2021 at El Conquistador Tucson, in Tucson, Arizona. We look forward to this being the highest attended convention in the association’s history.
