Due to COVID 19 impacts the annual meeting for the association could not be held during the Southern Farm Show because it was canceled this year.
In lieu of that regularly scheduled meeting we will hold a virtual format event on March 25, 2021 beginning at 10:00 am and conclude at 12:00 noon.
It will be the first ever, joint meeting of TGANC and Tobacco Associates (TA).
Please mark your calendar and plan to join in remotely with both organizations: Tobacco Growers Association of North Carolina and Tobacco Associates.
Our thanks to NC Farm Bureau (NCFB) who has agreed to host the virtual event via Zoom at its Raleigh offices.
