Conference News May 30th, 2013………………..
During Turney Hernandez years with DuPont, he worked with Highway Departments all over the U.S. Many were good customers and good friends. A number of them asked him to lead the way to form a national association that would benefit all states, counties and cities. So, in January, 1984, at a Southern Weed Science meeting in Hot Springs, AR, fifteen key decision makers met and Kansas City, MO became the site of the first Annual Natiional Roadside Vegetation Management Association Conference.
