    We are very excited to announce that we are holding an in-person annual meeting this year! Below is the tentative schedule, but please note that some of the times and details may change. A few of the presenters are still unsure if they will be able to attend in person due to COVID.

    We would like to invite participants to submit samples of their teas before the event. Please write Angela (president@usltg.org) for more information.

    Lunch will be provided during the conference, as well as dinner on the 2nd.

    There is a block of rooms reserved at the Comfort Inn in Hammond with a special group rate of $111/night. You MUST book by September 9th to get this rate. Use this link to book https://www.choicehotels.com/reservations/groups/GR02I3
