Place: Marriott at University of Dayton , 1414 S. Patterson Blvd., Dayton, OH 45409

The ACS Central Region invites you to join them for a fun and educational weekend in Dayton, Ohio on June 3 and 4, 2022, when the region will host a Conifer College (CC) in conjunction with its annual conference. The theme of this CC is "Conifers and Companion Plantings". The organizers, led by Dennis Groh, have established a wide-ranging curriculum consisting of 16 speakers and a "stump the expert" session. Whatever your interests, you are almost certain to find it covered in one or more sessions. For a complete CC curriculum, see the link below. The conference will begin immediately after the CC. Keynote speaker, Bob Fincham, will spend an hour talking about the humorous side of ACS' first-generation members. On Saturday, buses will transport you on a tour of three private Dayton area gardens. To round out Saturday evening, you can enjoy all the fun and antics of the Central Region's fund-raising silent and live auctions. CC and Conference Registration Forms can be printed from the links below.

will masks be optional at the conifer college and the regional conference? Thank You.

Should mask be required, I will not attend. I am so done with the masking. Like wearing a leisure suit...make it optional!
