Dear FSHS members:
We would like to thank you for your participation in the society and for attending our annual meeting for the good of the vegetable stakeholders in Florida. As you know, we would have wanted to see you face-to-face but due to the current pandemic our meeting had to be rescheduled to an online format using TEAMS (Further details will be shared in the upcoming days and weeks).
Here are some important announcements to keep in mind for the success of this meeting:
As a Presenter, you need to register at https://fshs.org/meetings/ and encourage others to do so. Although registration runs until October 15th, 2020, it is better to register this in advance.
You will have a total of 15 minutes for Oral Presentation. It is highly recommended you leave some time for questions. Please prepare your presentation and email your power point to me (email@example.com) and to our Chairman Gene McAvoy (firstname.lastname@example.org) not later than October 8th, 2020.
When you submitted your abstract, we asked you to provide the “Author Agreement”. If you have not done so, please email us the author agreement to the editor and myself at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Please, let me know if you need a copy of the agreement.
The new Manuscript deadline is now October 31st, 2020. Please email your manuscript to the editor at email@example.com no later than the deadline. Also, kindly let us know if you have an update on the manuscript; for example, if the manuscript has been submitted to one of the American Society of Horticultural Sciences Journals.
The FSHS Vegetable Section needs your help in the upcoming years. Next year our Vegetable Vice-president will be Dr. Lincoln Zotarelli for the 2021 period. During our virtual business meeting, we will be electing our VP for the 2022 period. Please, let me know if you’d like to volunteer or would like to nominate someone for this task.
Once again, we thank you for your participation and we hope you enjoy our “virtual” FSHS annual meeting in 2020.
Please, let me know if you need help or require additional information with this year’s meeting.
