The 69th Plenary Meeting of the ICAC will be conducted during the week of September 20, 2010 in Lubbock, Texas.

The Standing Committee of the ICAC accepted an invitation to hold the meeting in Lubbock from the Government of the United States at a meeting. Delegates of Member Countries expressed their appreciation to the United States for its hospitality.

The State of Texas accounts for 40% of U.S. cotton production, and Lubbock County alone produces 10% of the cotton in Texas. Lubbock is a focal point of cotton activities, including research, production and processing.

Lubbock is also home to Texas Tech University, which has extensive cotton research and extension activities, and the Fiber and Biopolymer Research Institute. There are a host of cotton related enterprises in Lubbock, including Plains Cotton Cooperative, one of the busiest USDA cotton classing facilities, an office of Bayer Crop Science and many private merchants.

Plenary Meeting attendees will have a chance to visit industry officials and see harvesting, ginning, transportation and classing activities. The United States looks forward to sharing its cotton experience and warm Texas hospitality with ICAC delegates.

Registration material and details about hotels, the agenda and travel will be available in the first half of 2010.
