Happy New Year to all Ontario Agricultural Societies, Service Members and Fair Friends,

 As many of you are wondering about the status of the 2022 OAAS Convention, planned for February 17-19, we would like to let you know that the OAAS is still optimistically planning for an in-person event.

With the recent provincial government announcement, the hotel can make no further decisions until the upcoming 21-day restriction ends on January 27.   We will continue to discuss the various available options with the hotel team. Based on the government decisions as of January 27, the OAAS will determine the format and the 2022 OAAS Convention status.

 We thank you for your patience and understanding as we eagerly await to see what the next twenty-one days bring.

As soon as we have any updates, we will let you know.
