  • Welcome to the 45th Food & Beverage Environmental Conference

    It is my great pleasure as Chair of the 45th Food and Beverage Environmental Conference to welcome you to Point Clear, Alabama and the beautiful Grand Hotel! We have a terrific program planned for you (OK, I might be biased, but it really is good!) in an incomparable setting filled with the warmth and hospitality of the Old South.

    Our conference this year has a definite maritime flair to it, being on Mobile Bay and so close to the Gulf of Mexico and all its seafood glory. For those of you who will be joining the technical tour in Bayou La Batre, the home of shrimp, oysters and crabmeat in Alabama, you will see firsthand the cooking, picking and packing of crabmeat.

    Weve even shaken things up on the program this year, and for the first time in recent memory, the wastewater session is on Wednesday afternoon let me tell you, that was a controversial decision! But, fear not, weve kept a wastewater theme early Thursday morning with a learning ad hoc session called Wastewater 303 just how good do you think you are on developing solutions to wastewater issues? Come on out and find out!

    But, this conference is about much more than technical sessions and learning. Its about friendships, tradition, relationships, networking and even having a shoulder to cry on about your latest compliance challenges. Perhaps we should add therapy to the list The first time I came to this conference in 2002 in Vancouver, I was hooked. It was practical, fun and the people I met have remained a constant in my professional life ever since. If youre a first-timer, welcome! I hope youll be hooked like I was and become part of the FBEC family.

    A conference like this doesnt come together without significant dedication and time from many volunteers from the processor, consultant and vendor communities. I would like to thank the Steering Committee for their guidance, the Planning Committee for their pursuit of excellence in getting superior programming together, Kristen Holmes and Rishi Banerjee from AFFI for their leadership before, during and after the conference and my husband Ralph Wilson for agreeing to be the spouses program chair.

    I would be remiss if I didnt thank the many sponsors who have supported this conference. Without your generous support, we would not be able to put on a gathering of this magnitude for a relatively modest cost. Check out their logos and shake the company representatives hands to thank them for their support!

    And finally, to all of you, thank you for attending. You will hear about odd things this week - Big Dogs, Little Kittens, Honey Dippers, the Talking Stick and Ships Wheel. Its all part of the tradition that is the Food and Beverage Environmental Conference. Enjoy it to its fullest!
