The Trade group is planning one more meeting to finalize bylaws and would like to invite all manufactures and marketers of humic products to be a part of this diverse group.

Steve Azzarello commented after the meeting, “I was completely blown away by the intellectual power of the members that attended the meeting, there were some seriously smart people in the room. Moreover, I was very excited by the cooperative nature of everyone.”

Dr. Damon S. Walia of Actech Inc, who has studied humic substances for over 20 years, summed up the spirit of the meeting best with his comment, “humic substance are a gift from our creator and it is our duty to show the world how they will improve our environment and our lives.”
