It’s Conference Time Again

Make your plans now to attend the National Roadside Vegetation Management Association (NRVMA)
Annual Conference, September 17-19, 2019 at the newly renovated Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky.

The Galt House is going through an $82 million dollar renovation. I have seen the most recent renovated rooms and you will be amazed at the new décor. I will have more on the conference details right after the start of 2019. All conference meeting rooms, registration and Exhibit Hall are within feet of each other and on the same floor.

This year our conference will begin on Tuesday, September 17th, mid morning, earlier than usual due to the outstanding program our Program Committee has developed. Dr. John Byrd, our Program Chairman and members of the committee have an exceptional educational program that will be very informative to our attendees.
The subject matter is only as good as those making the presentations and we will have some of the most highly educated and respected speakers in their field of roadside vegetation management. They come from all parts of the country.
