AMSA 72nd Reciprocal Meat Conference ~ "Meat Us in the Rockies"

Are you up for some breathtaking views, remarkable landscape, mouthwatering food, and an educational program that you will not find anywhere else? If so, make plans now to "Meat us in the Rockies" as Colorado State University and JBS USA, Food Company host the AMSA 72nd RMC June 23-26, 2019 in Fort Collins, CO!

A big thank you goes out to Colorado State University and JBS USA, Food Company for hosting the 2019 RMC site visit last week, September 23-25. Your warm welcome and excitement for the upcoming RMC was remarkable! The 2019 RMC host committee has put a lot of time and effort into making sure that every event at the upcoming AMSA 72nd RMC will be an unforgettable experience and an RMC that you will want to load up the family and bring them along for a fun filled family vacation.

The pre-RMC site visit is an important time for the planning committee to come together and bring the vision of the 72nd RMC to life. Tommy Wheeler, chair for the 2019 RMC, the AMSA staff, and the co-chairs for the 2019 technical program spent a few days looking at the meeting spaces, reviewing the RMC survey comments, discussing the program suggestions, and ironing out details to make the technical program for the AMSA 72nd RMC one that you will not find on any other conference agenda.

Attendees will be starting out at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Loveland Hotel Conference Center Monday morning for the Keynote presentation, AMSA International Lectureship Award presentation, concurrent sessions and ePoster viewing, not to mention great opportunities for networking! Tuesday morning, all attendees travel to the Colorado State University campus for the "Reciprocation Fair" which will be a full day of educational programs. Attendees will have the chance to tour the JBS Global Food Innovation Center in Honor of Gary & Kay Smith and participate in some hands-on reciprocation sessions. Then Wednesday, we will head back over to the Embassy Suites by Hilton Loveland Hotel Conference Center for a powerful keynote presentation and a variety of concurrent sessions and workshops.

Over the next few months, make sure to watch for eNews announcements regarding the Keynote speakers, concurrent sessions, and the Wednesday sessions. This is going to be one RMC you will not want to miss out on OR leave early!
