Register onsite for the Council for Burley Tobacco annual meeting
On Friday, January 12 the Council for Burley Tobacco will hold our annual member meeting in Lexington, Kentucky at the 2018 Tobacco Expo. This year our annual speaker will be Chris Greer, President and CEO of TMA. TMA is a trade association focused on supplying factual information to a variety of universities and other research groups, organizations, companies, and associations. I hope you will take time to attend the meeting to hear our speaker and share your concerns to The Council for Burley Tobacco board members. Online registration has closed for the meeting, but you can register onsite that morning and enjoy the Tobacco Expo, GAP training, and the 2018 Council for Burley Tobacco.
