49th MSC Annual Meeting
Hilton Charlotte City Center
Charlotte, NC
October 6-8, 2020

Mark your calendars to join the Mulch & Soil Council in the Queen City of Charoltte, NC, on October 6-8, 2020.

• In May, the Council surveyed its membership to detrmine the level of interest in holding an in-person annual meeting for 2020.

• After a positive response, the Board of Directors authorized continued exploration via participation committments from industry sponsors.

• At the same time, the Council is defining the procedural requirements needed to assure a safe event for all participants.

• Finally, the Council is continuously monitoring the COVID-19 infection rates for Charlotte and the entire state of North Carolina to determine if state regulations will permit an in-person meeting or if regulations and facilities elsewhere might be in the best interest of the MSC and its members.

In late July, the MSC Board of Directors will meet to review the sponsor committments, the status of Covid-19 infections in Charlotte and around the country, the status of travel safety in the U.S., and the continued feasibility of having a SAFE and productive annual meeting for 2020.

Stay Tuned for Further Developments at the end of July!
