We are looking forward to an exciting array of speakers from around the state. As in the past, attendees can receive continuing education credits for TWS and SAF professional certification programs.

Food: Lunch on Thursday will be on your own. There are several on-campus food options and off-campus restaurants. Coffee and snacks will be provided at the breaks. The Thursday night social and award ceremony are hosted at Printer’s Ale Tap Room (https://printers-ale.com/). Tickets ($15) for the social include 2 free drinks (select from a variety of craft brews and non-alcoholic root beer) and a BBQ dinner (cooked by Pitmaster Theron Menken). Vegan sides and veggie burgers will also be available. You must purchase a social ticket by August 30 so we can ensure there is enough food for attendees.
