Annual Meeting

Our 2018 Convention will be held July 12-14th at the Radisson BLU – Downtown Minneapolis.  This will mark the 3rd year that the Cottonseed and Feed Association will join with the National Cottonseed Products Association at a shared convention site.  The CFA is the site host this year.

Hello Everyone, 

It is time to register for the 3rd annual joint CFA/NCPA meeting in downtown Minneapolis. Since everything is close to the Radisson Blu, my suggestion is not to have a vehicle. Self-parking is $22/night . Uber/Lyft availability is plentiful.  Another option is to take the light rail from the airport to downtown. It is very economical.

I hope to have a great turn out. I have scheduled many events that will invite a lot of opportunities to socialize. Attached is the schedule of events. The Hotel is a smaller venue which will facilitate the opportunity to easily connect with CFA/NCPA members. Below is a link to a map of the downtown area and list of restaurants. The cutoff date for the Hotel block is June 11th and the cutoff date for any refunds of registration and events is the same.

Larry Johnson

CFA President
