National Association of Plant Breeders
2020 Annual Meeting
August 16–20, 2020
After much planning and anticipation as the NAPB 2020 Annual Meeting shifted from an in-person conference to a virtual one – the day is finally here to explore the virtual conference website.
The first plenary meeting on the schedule is the Meeting Kick Off on Monday, August 17th from 9:30-10:00am (Central Daylight Time – America/Chicago). If you can’t make it to the kick-off, don’t worry – that session, all the numbered sessions (1-8), and the awards session will be recorded and archived in the schedule to view later. The archived content will be available for 1 year after the conference (until August 2021).
