    As everyone knows, our annual Regional Conference event is our largest, most fun & most well attended event, each year.   With much consideration and discussion, the Board of Directors has decided it is best to move the time and location for this event rather than cancel it for the year.  

    We have decided the new date for the Regional Conference will be May 12-14, 2021 and the event will be held in the greater Milwaukee area.   We are working hard to finalize a suitable location for the 2021 event as the event cannot be held at the Potawatomi Hotel and Casino, as it has in the past.   The overall look of the Regional will likely be different and only time will be able to carve out exactly what those details will look like.   We will do everything we can to offer an event that mimics as many of the amazing offerings as past events. 

    • Technical Sessions (with virtual options)
    • Casting Competition
    • Job Fair
    • Networking and Business Discussions
    • Exhibit Opportunities
    • Great Food and Interesting Speakers
    • Sponsorship Opportunities

     Watch for more details as we move closer to May.
