North American Blueberry Research and Extension Workers Conference


NABREW 2014


Dear Colleagues,

Please save the date: We are planning the next NABREW conference for June 22-26, 2014 to be held at the Sheraton Hotel, 2 Convention Blvd., Atlantic City, NJ 08401. The hotel is close to all Atlantic City has to offer and is within easy driving distance to area airports (Philadelphia International Airport, PHL and Atlantic City International Airport, ACY) and the blueberry growing areas in New Jersey. The June time frame coincides with the start of our blueberry season with the earliest varieties ripening at this time. The organizing committee is working toward arranging an exciting scientific program and an informative field trip. The preliminary schedule and call for papers is forthcoming. Please distribute the link to this announcement to interested colleagues. Additional information will be posted as it becomes available. Please check back often. We look forward to being your hosts in 2014 and do hope you plan on joining us!

Our special guest keynote speaker will be Mr. Joseph Darlington, grand nephew of Elizabeth C. White. He will be presenting ‘A brief history of the commercial blueberry industry in New Jersey’.

For more information, please contact James Polashock, James.Polashock@ARS.USDA.GOV.

Sincerely,

The NABREW 2014 Organizing Committee
