2017 AWPA Committee Meetings: 
Key West, Florida - September 17-21, 2017

 

Key West, the southernmost point in the continental U.S., offers a tropical blend of azure waters, exotic foliage, and four-star restaurants, with a history of some notorious and notable figures.  Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams made their homes in Key West, while former president Harry Truman once wrote: "I've a notion to move the capital to Key West and just stay."  Significant research on marine borers has been done around the piers of this quaint coastal town.  For more information on what to do in Key West, go to the Key West Chamber of Commerce website: www.keywestchamber.org.


Key WestNote:  The deadline for all standardization proposals (new standards, revisions to or reaffirmation of existing standards, or withdrawal of standards) is 75 days prior to the commencement of the meetings.  For the Fall 2017 Standardization Cycle, the deadline for all proposals is Wednesday, July 5, 2017, at 11:59 pm CDT (US).  Comments or suggested modifications of proposals shall be sent to the proponent of the proposal as soon as possible after proposals are posted to the appropriate committee pages.  Please remember: "All written materials to be distributed to Technical Committee members before or during the meeting and/or any visual presentations to be made at the meeting shall be submitted to AWPA, the proponent, and the Technical Committee members at least 20 days prior to the commencement of the meeting" (TCR 8.7), which is Tuesday, August 29, 2016.
