Spring Webinar Series
In mid-March, NCTA hosted a three-part webinar series that gave NCTA members and non-members insight into how the industry fared during the 2013 season and what the coming year looks like legislatively. The third webinar is post-ponned until the 2012 Ag Census data becomes available. When that time comes, the third webinar will be scheduled to review the results of the Real Christmas Tree industry information collected during the USDA's 5-year ag census.

*Date and Time TBD - USDA Ag Census Results
Presenter: TBD, National Ag Stats Service 
*PLEASE NOTE: The third webinar of the series will be on hold until the results of the 2012 Ag Census have been published.  We will keep you informed as we know more details.

Registration Rates
The registration fee covers all three sessions in the webinar series. If you are unable to attend one or more of the live sessions, a link to the presentation will be emailed out to all registered participants after each part in the series.

2014 National Tree & Wreath Contests
In 2014, NCTA will not hold a national convention or conference, returning to the biennial format we traditionally had.

However, in 2014 the association will hold the annual National Tree and Wreath Contests at the Michigan and Mid-America Christmas Tree Summer Meeting in Allegan, Michigan. The regional meeting will be held July 25-26, 2014 and  will feature the largest industry trade show in the Midwest as well as a variety of educational sessions, equipment demonstrations and tours. Attendees will tour Peterson’s and neighboring farms; Badger Evergreen Nursery and Armintrout’s Nursery.

Producers from all states are welcome and encouraged to attend this regional event. The National Christmas Tree & Wreath contests will begin the day prior to the meeting. If you are just entering the National Tree or Wreath Contest, you do NOT need to register for the Michigan/Mid-America meeting. You will need to still submit a contest entry form before the July 10 deadline, which can be downloaded below.
