The Board of Directors of the Northeastern Loggers Association has decided that it’s in the best interest of the association, our exhibitors, and attendees to postpone the 2020 Loggers Expo until October 16-17, 2020.  The October show will still be held at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction, VT.  The Loggers Banquet sponsored by Farm Credit will now be held on Thursday, October 15th and will still be held at the Delta Hotel by Marriott in South Burlington, VT. Please take care of yourself and your family.
