Hi All,
I wanted to share some great additions to the convention this year.

On Thursday, Jenna Gregorich will be speaking on Biosecurity at 3:30. She will also do a Q&A on the National Poulty Improvement plan also known as NPIP. You don't want to miss this. We should all come away with a better understanding of how to keep our birds healthy and safe from major health risks.

Bill Vinduska has offered to do a presentation on building pens and peafowl enclosures. He will start at 2:15 . I think this will be another excellent presentstion.

Come early! You don't want to miss a minutes of these exceptional, educational presentations. We have more presenters and more activities than ever at this year's convention. Hope you can join us. You won't be disappointed!
