100th Annual Winter Meeting

LaSells Stewart Center, OSU Campus

Tuesday January 13th, 2015 – 8am – 2:30pm


The continued expansion of the Oregon Hazelnut Industry led us to outgrow our space at the Northwest Ag Show. This year’s meeting will be at OSU in the LaSells Stewart Conference Center. Save your Winter Meeting nametag, and use it to gain free entrance into the Portland Ag Show later in the month.
