2020 WMA Virtual Convention & Sponsors’ Forum
WMA's Diamond Jubilee — A Cut Above the Rest!
WE ARE GOING VIRTUAL!
You are invited to the first WMA Virtual Convention & Sponsors’
Forum! As the world continues to adapt, we are not able to come
together for the 2020 WMA Convention and Expo. But we believe the
need for us to connect, inform and educate is stronger than ever!
We also believe in the power of gathering our community to share,
inspire, and strengthen our industry is just as important — even
if virtually! So we find ourselves with our first ever one-day
online Convention & Sponsors’ Forum!
The 2020 WMA Virtual Convention will begin on Tuesday, October 13, 2020.
We will have one live event with the Annual Meeting so please plan to attend this. Your approval votes are needed on several items. Those wishing to attend this event only and not have to register for the entire Virtual Convention will be provided with Zoom information at a later time.
Exhibitors will have “sponsorships”. Their “presence” is an important aspect to the WMA Virtual Convention. Come view their infomercials or check out their websites all gathered in a Sponsors’ Forum.
We will certainly miss seeing you in person! So please join us online!
