2020 ODI Conference Cancelled

Posted by ODI Secretary | On: Mar 11 2020

Dear ODI members and supporters,

ODI was established in 1910 and in the past 110 years has hosted 108 conferences. Only the Second World War managed to interrupt our proud tradition of providing educational opportunities for our members.

Well… the coronavirus is going to go down in history as the second time the ODI Conference was cancelled.

We regret to inform you that the ODI Board has decided to cancel our 2020 conference.

The safety and well-being of our presenters, attendees, volunteers, and life-members remain our top priority. Given the rapid spread of the coronavirus and the grave consequences of COVID-19, there was no other option than to cancel.

We will all miss the opportunity to learn about current dairy events along with networking and socializing. At this point, we are offering full refunds to registrants, vendors, and sponsors and are apologizing to everyone for the inconvenience.

Those persons can expect a detailed email to follow.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2021 ODI Conference next year on April 13-14.

– Steve Cettel, ODI President and the ODI Board
