Call for Presentations
Share with the industry!

Planning is underway for the WFA Convention & Trade Show - RECONNECT Reno 2017 - Jan. 15-18. We need your input!
Western Fairs has members across the country. We strive to have programming that's relevant to all of our varied members. WFA is a truly member-driven organization, and that extends to Convention programming with members generating incredible ideas and panels for presentations.
All members are invited to submit proposals for review. The Convention offers a wide variety of presentation settings, from panels to lectures. In particular, our members are interested in hearing more about: Marketing, Strategic Planning, Operations, Exhibits, Technology, and Personnel Issues/Human Resources.  However, all topics are welcome for consideration and you should feel free to submit proposals for anything you feel is industry relevant!
Have a session topic you'd like to present at our premier event or know of someone that would be a great presenter?  Click below to fill out the Call for Presentation form and forward this email to those who may be interested.

The deadline to submit a presentation is April 29th!

Keep them in mind during fairtime

Remember to get documentation together while it’s top of mind if you plan on entering the WFA Achievement Awards program (the pool from which the Merrill Nominations are pulled!).  The entry deadline is, once again, early: Friday, Nov. 4. There are new categories, and some categories will judge entries against a standard rather than against each other. All entries will be submitted digitally.

The 2016 Featured Programs include Agricultural Programming and Celebrating Partnership Success.
