With the current situation regarding COVID-19, the Idaho Association of Plant Protection has decided to not hold an in-person meeting in 2020. Instead, we will meet virtually using Zoom. There will be no cost to participate in the meeting.
The program will run from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Wednesday, November 4, and 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Thursday, November 5. A total of 7.5 Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) and 7 ISDA Pesticide Recertification credits (ISDA) are available. Participants wishing to get ISDA credits will need to pass an online test as a way to verify attendance.
To attend, you need to register using these links:
After registering you will receive an email confirming that you will be able to access the Zoom meeting. If you do not receive the confirmation email, please contact me at [email protected]. If you have questions for the presenters, we ask that you send them through the Chat feature. If the speaker has left time for questions, the moderator will facilitate the discussion of those questions.
