The Mid America CropLife Association (MACA) quarterly meetings will be held on Wednesday, November 7, 2012, and Thursday, November 8, 2012, at the Marriott St. Louis Airport Hotel, 10700 Peartree Lane,St. Louis, Missouri.

Please make your hotel arrangements prior to the meeting by calling the Marriott at 800-228-9290 or directly at 314-423-9700 to reserve a room at the rate of $124.00 plus tax (this includes the meeting fee of $25/person). To ensure this rate, say you are with MACA. Last day to reserve a hotel room is Monday, October 15, 2012, by 5:00 p.m. There is a complimentary shuttle to and from Lambert Airport 24 hours a day.

The committee meetings are on Wednesday with the Board meeting Thursday morning beginning at 7:30 am. Please plan to join President Jason Paris, Vice President Greg Reigh, Secretary-Treasurer Tom Quade and Immediate Past President Matt Wagner for an evening of fellowship Wednesday, November 7.

A special event has been planned for Wednesday evening that I think will be fun, interesting and provide a look in the future. We'll be touring Jacobson Warehouse Facilities to see how they store non-perishable items for Schnuck's grocery stores (family owned St. Louis based stores since the early 1930's), do a "voice" pick, then load on trucks and take to stores.

We'll also see how they store consumer health care products. We'll end the tour with a reception and dinner at a local restaurant. Again, I think this will be an excellent opportunity to see something new and talk with some other folks.

A complete schedule for the meeting is posted at

Registration for the meeting and to reserve a place for the warehouse tour will be available later this month at the same link. Please be sure and register by November 1.
