During the last conference in South Africa (see below)  a contingent from the Canary Islands made a case for hosting the next International Protea Association Conference in Spring of 2020. The IPA board voted to approve, so you have less than a year to clear your schedule! For CPA members who wish to join the IPA, click to see the IPA Membership Form.
