The Council meets twice during each year for a Winter Meeting and a Summer Meeting.
Winter Meeting: Held in late January, the Winter Meeting includes oral reports from researchers on their respective projects. Council members approve the annual budget for the year, allocating funds toward specific research projects.
Summer Meeting: The mid-year meeting is held in one of the U.S. hop growing regions on a rotating basis. The agenda includes farm tours of the hop growing region which provides members an opportunity to evaluate the upcoming crop. Researchers present project updates and submit project proposals for funding consideration.
Winter Meeting 2020: January 21&22 in Portland, Oregon, as part of the American Hop Convention.
