Manufactured into low-density boards, exfoliated vermiculite acts as an insulator making it of good use to building construction. These boards are also often used as the core of fire resistant products as well as cement and plaster.

Here's an idea! Exfoliated vermiculite is easily poured around irregular shaped objects and provides a cushion against shock during handling and transportation. Being highly absorbent, exfoliated vermiculite used for packaging is also an ideal material should leakage occur during transportation.

When vermiculite is combined with other media, such as peat or composted pine bark compost, it promotes faster root growth and gives quick anchorage to young roots.

In light of current developments with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and the travel ban placed on certain members coming to the U.S., the TVA Board of Directors has decided to postpone the Annual Meeting that was to be held in Washington, D.C. on April 22-24, 2020 until later this year.

This decision was not made lightly. However, the safety of our members is our top concern. It is also very important to TVA leadership and staff that all members be able to participate in the Annual Meeting and travel restrictions may not have allowed that to occur.

If you have already registered, your registration for the event will be cancelled and your registration fee will be refunded. Please be patient with us as we process refunds over the next few weeks. If you made hotel reservations for the event, YOU are responsible for cancelling those reservations.

We plan to reschedule the meeting; and, as soon as possible, we will communicate that information through email, our website and quarterly newsletter.

We are disappointed about this turn of events and apologize for any inconvenience this change may have caused. If you have any questions, please contact our Director of Conferences and Events, Lori Zelesko, at [email protected]. Please remember to cancel your hotel and travel reservations.

The TVA Board of Directors met last week for strategic planning at our Harrisburg, Pennsylvania headquarters.
