2020: cancelled


Seven Springs, PA

June 12-15

Dear Guernsey Breeders,

It is with regret that we inform you that the 2020 National Guernsey Convention in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania has been cancelled. This decision was not made lightly, and was informed by the rapidly evolving global situation as well as our desire for our membership to remain healthy and stable during this challenging time. We intend to carry out our Annual Meeting and director elections as required by our Bylaws, and hope to carry out additional events in a virtual space. We are working out the details and assure you that more information will be shared with you soon. 

Please mark June 12-15, 2021 on your calendars, as Pennsylvania will be hosting the convention in Seven Springs. Thank you to Ohio for being flexible with their original 2021 planning.
