The Southern Nursery Association (SNA) has announced The SNA Virtual Conference scheduled for February 2021 has been canceled. The SNA board made this decision based on current industry and public constraints brought on by COVID-19. The SNA Plant Conference, the SNA Research Conference and the 122nd Annual SNA Business Meeting, to be held in conjunction with The SNA Conference, has also been canceled.
“The past year has created disruption and significant challenges for many associations and industry events, including the SNA. We would like to thank our members and state and national associations, as well as sponsors, speakers and researchers for their support during these uncertain times,” said Karen Summers, SNA executive vice president.
“In the coming weeks the SNA board will be analyzing current programs and events to determine the future direction of the association. As we navigate uncharted waters and develop strategies for what’s next, we ask for your patience and continued support,” she added.
Founded in 1899, the Southern Nursery Association is a non-profit trade association representing the horticultural industry in the southeastern U.S. The SNA strives to unite and advance the horticulture industry through educational, research and marketing efforts.
