International Cotton Institute to be held University of Memphis

ACSA International Cotton Institute will be held on May 27 till July 16, 2008.

Memphis, Tennessee, and cotton are synonymous. Their interwoven, rich history, booming cotton business, and an ever-present need for educational opportunities in all aspects of the global cotton industry are the impetus behind the International Cotton Institute, a joint venture between the American Cotton Shippers Association (ACSA) and The University of Memphis.

The ACSA International Cotton Institute is an eight week residential program designed to provide a basic education in all aspects of the cotton industry and the international business environment for men and women worldwide.

From field to fabric, to manual classing and the use of HVI data, through risk management and the basics of price protection - the program offers an in-depth look at cotton from virtually every perspective.

Dramatic changes in cotton's production, processing, classification, transportation, and manufacturing technologies; and the continuing evolution of new trade patterns brought about by the expansion of free trade in cotton in South and Central America, Eastern Europe, and Central and Southeast Asia require expanded educational programs for those involved in all facets of the cotton industry in both the producing and consuming nations of the world.

The 2008 International Cotton Institute will be held at The University of Memphis in the Fogelman Executive Conference Center. When not attending lectures or classing cotton, participants can retreat to the newly renovated fourth floor hotel.

Each guest room is equipped with a private bath, queen-sized bed, 19” television with remote, work desk with modem ports, and private balcony. The hotel commons area is complete with fireplace, board games and television, and fully appointed kitchen.
