2017 91st Annual PSA Convention
The Pacific Seed Association recently successfully completed its 91st Annual Convention. The 2017 Annual Convention was held at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas in Palm Springs, California. Attendees included several PSA members as well as some non-members from 5 states (Idaho, Oregon, Washington, California & North Dakota).
A number of topics were discussed including pesticide labeling and EPA issues, crop reports from various sectors of the industry, state seed association reports, PSA reports, and a forum on how to better the Association for its membership-base. Some of the highlights included a hosted reception by former PSA president, Mike Ingham; a wine tasting with Joann Dunham with Dunham Cellars from Walla Walla, WA; a Calcutta Golf Auction for the annual PSA Golf Scramble; and entertainment by Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe impersonators.
A sincere thank you goes to Mike Ingham with Rainier Seeds for not only assisting with the planning of the Convention but for also sponsoring the wine tasting (including free bottles of wine for all attendees), the hospitality suite, and the entertainment for the banquet. Please see the exciting pictures below that were taken during the 2017 Annual PSA Convention.
