Another Reminder to Register for the 2006 Illinois Crop Protection Technology Conference, the Corn & Soybean Classics, and/or the Regional Crop Management Workshops
Planning continues for the Crop Protection Technology Conference, the Corn & Soybean Classics, and the Regional Crop Management Workshops, and registrations are "pouring in" (to quote a knowledgeable source) daily. We think we have some excellent educational programs planned for these events in 2006, and we hope you take the opportunity to attend one or more of them.
Lots of information about the conference and the Classics is available on our IPM Conferences web site. You can register for either program online, or you can download a printable form and register by mail. The early-registration deadline for the conference is December 16. The early-registration deadlines for the Classics are December 23 (for phone, fax, and mail-in registrations) and January 4 (for online registrations). Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) credits for each program have been established. Check the Web site for more information.
