Board members contributed to a successful annual meeting in North Carolina

The 2017 Annual Board Meeting in Raleigh, North Carolina, began in full on Wednesday, October 25, following a Tuesday Biotech Round Table--a spirited gathering focused on biotech challenges and opportunities in the world of science and agriculture.

The three-day CAST meeting focused on the implementation of the Strategic Plan. As CAST EVP Kent Schescke said, "We are determined that this plan will not gather dust on a shelf. It guides the everyday work of the organization."

Along with presentations, discussions, and tours, a special highlight was the "passing of the leadership gavel," as Nancy Reichert (pictured at right with Past President Richard Cavaletto) was installed as the new president of CAST.
