Convene ’21 Set For the Quad Cities, Iowa Feb. 9-10
The Isle Hotel & Casino in the Quad Cities, Iowa, is scheduled for National Farmers winter meeting next February. “COVID-19 has thrown a monkey wrench into our meeting plans, because of the unknowns,” said National Farmers Director of Communications Perry Garner.
“At this time, we are proceeding with the in-person meeting members expect, but are also working on making Convene ‘21 available to farmers online, as an alternative.” Convene ’21 is just two days long, with a special member tour of the John Deere factory floor and the John Deere Pavilion on Monday, Feb. 8, the day before Convene ’21 starts.
A national board meeting is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 8. The newly re-vamped schedule calls for legislative policy resolutions, arrangements, election and tally and committee meetings taking place Tuesday morning Feb. 9, beginning at 7:30 a.m. The general session begins at 10:00 a.m.
Garner is researching additional options in case an in-person meeting becomes impossible because of the pandemic. A completely virtual meeting could be an option.
Isle Casino Hotel® Bettendorf is conveniently located off the I-74 in downtown Bettendorf. The venue is just minutes away from I-80 and I-88. Be sure to register now.
