Immediate Past President’s Letter

Daryl Kleinschmit, PhD, PAS, Dipl. ACAS

As we move further into 2021, I am happy to see that things are getting back to a more ‘normal’ environment. Some of the members have been able to meet in person for the ASAS Scientific Meeting in Louisville, Kentucky, and the ARPAS Symposium will be held in a hybrid format versus a 100% virtual format as we did in 2020. I look forward to next year at this time when both ADSA and ASAS should be able to meet in person and the ARPAS meetings normally scheduled during that time could also be held in person.

Executive Vice President’s Report

Kenneth Cummings, PhD, PAS, Dipl. ACAS

“What motivates retired people to want to take on part-time work? They need some place to go, they want to be needed, they need the money, they have a cause they care about------or retirement is really just a figment of one’s imagination. I can eliminate most of these very quickly and say if I did not believe in the mission of ARPAS, the business of agriculture and the continuance of my long-term association with friends and associates, I would not be a very happy person. I can also add that my wife would be very unhappy also. Thanks for rescuing me.”
