We cordially invite you to attend the 2014 NACD South Central Regional meeting. The meeting will be held July 27-29, 2014, in College Station, Texas hosted by the Association of Texas Soil and Water Conservation Districts.
The meeting will kick off on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. with a Welcome Reception. All meetings will take place on the campus of Texas A&M University in the new AgriLife Building.
Rooms are available at the Hilton College Station, 801 University Drive East, for $119 a night. To reserve your room, call 979-693-7500 by July 6. Ask for Group Code TSWCD. Transportation will be provided for meeting participants to and from the hotel.
We are very excited about the tour we are able to offer this year. We will start the afternoon at the Texas Forest Service Fire Command Center to learn more about how the Forest Service monitors and manages wildfires in Texas.
Participants will then make the short drive to the Thomas Ranch in Richards, Texas. Once there, we will tour the ranch, as well as the Grandview Vineyards. After the tours you will enjoy a bar-b-que dinner and some special entertainment.
We also have a unique opportunity for spouses this year. The spouse’s registration fee also includes a hands-on floral design class. The class will be conducted by the Floral Department at A&M. Unfortunately, due to the need to order flowers in advance we will not be able to accept late registrations for the class. To participate in the class you must preregister.
Included in this packet is the registration information and a draft agenda.
Registration deadline is Thursday, July 10. Mail the completed registration form and check to ATSWCD, P.O. Box 658, Temple, Texas 76503.
