“Speaking of Oats…” and other events

Merry Christmas to those of you celebrating today, January 7th, and Happy New Year!

The Oat Newsletter calendar has been updated, with some new events being added and some existing ones being modified or cancelled.

The next “Speaking of Oats…” webinar will be on Tuesday, January 25th, at 4:30 pm EST, which is 8:00 am ACDT on January 26th in Adelaide, Australia, the home of our main speaker, Pamela Zwer. Pamela and guests will be discussing “The origin and evolution of the International Oat Conference”. Registration is NOW OPEN.

Part of what’s special about the International Oat Conference (IOC) is the cultural exchange, and the timing of the webinar coincides with either Burns Day or Australia Day, depending on where you live. A Burns Supper was held as part of the 6th IOC in New Zealand in 2000. The 4th IOC was held in Adelaide, Australia, in 1992, and the 11th IOC will be held in Perth, Australia, later this year (see the IOC section under the "Meetings" tab of the newsletter for more information about all of the conferences).

Please join us for an entertaining look back and a peek at what’s to come!
