The ASEV Board of Directors is looking forward to hosting the 2011 ASEV National Conference in California’s Monterey wine region. The Portola Hotel and Monterey Conference Center will be the site of the 62nd National Conference, June 20-24, 2011.
“This will be the perfect site for our technical program and regional wine tastings in the heart of a major wine region and beautiful setting,” ASEV Executive Director Lyndie Boulton said.
The 2010 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium, co-hosted by ASEV and the California Association of Winegrape Growers, drew a crowd of approximately 11,700 industry representatives to Sacramento, California in January. One of its highlighted events, the High Elevation/High Latitude Seminar: Wine Growing on the Edge was well received with great opportunity to taste wines representative of this unique terroir. Planning for 2011 in Sacramento is underway, and we look forward to continuing this extensive, popular trade show and developing another topic-focused program.
The Board of Directors is pleased to announce that the proposed bylaws amendment was approved by 92% of the responding votes. The member feedback in addition to returned ballots was greatly appreciated and extremely gratifying to the board and staff. We also acknowledge that this outcome was not desired by some members. We would welcome contact by any of you who may have questions or concerns.
The newly amended bylaws are in effect now as stipulated by the bylaws. The board will proceed with posting a call for the new Technical Program Director for this appointed position.
