2013 Three-City Fall Meeting - September 23-28, 2013
NAPMM is offering a unique series of tours of markets in Toronto, Rochester and Syracuse the week of September 23-28. Members can participate in the entire week of workshops and tours for just $125, or you can choose any portion for just $50. Transportation between cities will be provided as well as a number of the meals. We have secured special rates at hotels in all three venues.
September is a beautiful month in the Toronto area and upstate New York, and market and produce are at their seasonal peaks. Come experience the bounty of the region, share knowledge with fellow market managers, and learn how these markets are coping with the changing retail and wholesale environment.
The Maryland Food Produce and Seafood Markets hosted a successful conference in Columbia, Maryland, March 20-23, 2013. Over 50 attendees enjoyed tours of six markets, informative workshops and a keynote address by Deputy Secretary of Agriculture, Kathleen Merrigan. The receptions and food at the conference hotel, the Sheraton Columbia Town Center were excellent and, as always, the many chances to netowrk with market managers from around the country, Canada, and Australia (great to meet you, Natasha and Mom), added greatly to the value for attendees.
Our conference video will be posted at a later date.
Thank you from the NAPMM Officers and Board to the conference committee and all the presenters. See you next year in the Big apple!!
Jim Farr, NAPMM Conference Chair
