More than 800 wine industry leaders, researchers and other academic representatives from around the world gathered in Napa in June at the ASEV’s 60th annual meeting, putting research and science center stage among world famous wineries and vineyards.
“To mark our 60th Annual Meeting, we’ve made significant enhancements, not the least of which is hosting it in a world-class wine country where the research the Society fosters is being put into practice everyday,” said ASEV Executive Director Lyndie Boulton.
The Annual Meeting in Napa provided many firsts for ASEV, including successfully hosting a large event in the middle of a wine region. The 60th Annual Meeting provided 800 attendees with an exceptional and well-balanced program, offering a blend of the latest research reports, innovations and practical applications to its members.
Are you interested in finding out more on how to grow wine in higher elevations or high latitudes? The Unified Symposium is offering a Friday seminar, High Elevation/High Latitude, emphasizing climate changes, challenges, production and sustainability of winegrowing in higher elevations and latitudes. Glenn McGourty of the University of California Cooperative Extension, Mendocino/Lake Counties and Peter Molnar of Obsidian Ridge Vineyards and president of the Lake County Winegrape Commission will moderate this seminar.

The ASEV Annual Meeting will be referred to as the ASEV National Conference from 2010 onward. Based on direction from members, presenters, academia and industry, the Board endorsed the meeting name change to more accurately represent the nature and scope of this well-established conference. This change was part of a comprehensive analysis of the entire program matrix.
The 61st Annual ASEV National Conference is set for June 20-25 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington.
All current Professional Members (per the bylaws) will be asked to vote on the Board’s proposed bylaws revisions. If you are a voting member, we encourage you to support the Board’s recommendations in order to better serve you. The proposed changes will increase efficiency, transparency and will ensure that our bylaws are legally current.
ASEV’s Board and staff have invested months evaluating the Society’s bylaws. The results are proposed bylaw revisions that will be sent to voting members for their review and ratification.
As the organizational governing document, bylaws are instrumental in enabling the efficiency and practicality of successful operations. They also mandate aspects of transparency. Our last bylaws revision was approved by the members in 2001.
Dr. Christian Butzke of Purdue University succeeded Opus One’s Michael Silacci as the ASEV board president on July 1.
“Michael Silacci, in his focused, sophisticated manner, has led an exceptional group of people who implemented a number of innovative program concepts and ideas,” said Butzke. “It has been an honor to work with him and to follow in his footsteps and expand on what he has started during his term.”
