ARLINGTON, VA – Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the USA Rice Millers’ Association Board of Directors voted unanimously last week to cancel the 2020 RMA Annual Convention that had been scheduled for June 16-19 in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The convention will be rescheduled for June 2021 at the same location.
“Protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our members, attendees, families, and the community at-large was paramount in the decision,” said Kenneth LaGrande, chair of the RMA Convention Coordinating Committee. “This was to be our 121st convention and while we take great pride in our longevity and traditions, this was the correct decision and we did not enter into it lightly. We wish everyone continued health and safety, and the convention will be back bigger and better in 2021.”
