No. 25 Article 3/December 5, 2008

A New "Illinois Crop Protection Technology Conference" in 2009

In issue 23 of the Bulletin (October 3, 2008), I wrote regarding the retirement of the Illinois Crop Protection Technology Conference after a 60-year run. This is a follow-up to clarify that we will not hold the conference in January 2009, although there will be other University of Illinois-sponsored educational events (the Corn & Soybean Classics and the Crop Management Conferences) in January and February. However, we ask that you mark the dates December 1 and 2, 2009, for a new educational program to be held at the i Hotel and Conference Center in the Research Park at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Although the name and format of the conference will change, we are still in the planning stages, so details are not yet available. We invite you to check our conference Web site (www.ipm.uiuc.edu/conferences) for developments over the next few months. In addition, we will advertise the new conference in future articles of the Bulletin and through other media. Stay tuned. In the meantime, let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.--Kevin Steffey
