Taking a Raincheck: 2020 ELS

Over the past several weeks, the American Feed Industry Association has been closely monitoring guidance from state and federal health authorities regarding traveling to areas where COVID-19 is spreading. At this time, AFIA has regrettably made the decision to postpone AFIA’s 2020 Executive Leadership Summit (ELS), scheduled to begin on Oct. 22 in Lake Tahoe, Nev. Please note that AFIA did not make this decision lightly, but after close consultation with our members and partners, we felt it was the right thing to do to protect the health and safety of our attendees and staff. Should you have any other questions related to ELS or any feedback on educational resources that you may need for 2020, please reach out to Veronica Rovelli, AFIA’s senior director of meetings and events.
