It normally meets in October of the year preceding the convention to develop programs, workshops, social activities and other considerations implemented. However, matters relating to pricing for exhibit space, registration fees, or items necessitating significant financial commitment are regarded as subject to Board approval prior to implementation. Committee members serve a one-year term and are reimbursed only for their travel and lodging during the actual Convention Committee meeting in the fall of the year preceding the Convention being planned.

Educational Sessions
Planned by a committee of meat industry participants, morning-long concurrent sessions offer a wide variety of practical information, manufacturing solutions and business enhancement ideas. The focus is on small and very small operations.
