Plains Cotton Growers, Inc., is pleased to announce that the organization’s 54th Annual Meeting will be held Friday, April 1, 2011, in the Banquet Hall of the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center. The meeting is being held in conjunction with the Texas Cotton Ginners’ Association Annual Meeting and Trade Show, March 31-April 1, 2011, in Lubbock.

PCG’s Annual Meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. with registration, and the program will start promptly at 9 a.m. Headlining PCG’s 54th Annual Meeting lineup is keynote speaker Walt Coleman of Little Rock, Ark. Coleman is a sixth generation dairyman with an interesting second career that has brought him (often anonymously) into the living rooms of millions of Americans for the last 22 years.

While his weekday job is centered on the operation of Coleman Dairy in Little Rock, Coleman’s weekends each fall are spent on the much grander stage of professional football.

Coleman’s motivational message incorporates the many lessons he has learned during an incredible life that mixes the reality of operating a thriving, family-oriented agricultural business with the fastpaced, and often maligned, role of referee in the National Football League.

Through it all, Coleman has developed a unique perspective on life and success, which he delivers in a relaxed style that is sure to inform and entertain.

Preceding Coleman on the PCG program are John Maguire, Vice President- Washington Operations for the National Cotton Council of America, and William A. “Bill” Gillon of Memphis, Tenn., who was named President and CEO of the Cotton Board in October of 2010.

Gillon has previously served as General Counsel for the NCC and in numerous government posts, including Senior Counsel for the Committee on Agriculture Nutrition and Forestry of the U.S. Senate and as an attorney in the Office of General Counsel at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Maguire will bring the PCG membership up-to-date on the challenges facing agriculture and the cotton industry in the tense legislative and budgetary climate that currently permeates Washington. Gillon will discuss his new role at the Cotton Board and highlight recent achievements and the latest news from the Cotton Research and Promotion Program of Cotton Incorporated.

During the PCG meeting, awards recognizing the 2010 High Plains Cotton Agent of the Year and the winners of the recently completed FFA West Texas Cotton Video Contest sponsored by Deltapine will be presented.
