Utah, Idaho and Wyoming Wool Growers Associations
Joint Winter Convention
November 9-11, 2012
Snow King Lodge & Resort
Please join us November 9 -11, 2012 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming for a historic event. For the first time, three of the nation’s oldest and most respected Wool Growers associations will come together for a joint winter convention sure to be an exciting, informative and enjoyable event. This unique gathering will bring together some of the best sheep and wool producers from the heart of the U.S. sheep industry. You don’t want to miss it!
We will meet at the Snow King Lodge & Resort, where we have negotiated a rate of $89/night for the first 150 reservations. Please call 1.800.522.KING (5464) and mention Wool Growers.
Registration: The registration form (PDF file) can be downloaded and mailed or faxed to Idaho Wool Growers (Fax: 208-336-9447, Office: 208-344-2271). You can also register on the Idaho Wool Growers website: www.idahowool.org/OnlineRegistration.html
You can pay with check or credit card: credit card payments are not taken online, but you can call IWGA to pay over the phone. The registration form can be a bit confusing—you can pay the regular full price at the top, or you can pay by the day, and then add any meals you want.
Convention Outline (Subject to Change): The latest schedule (PDF file) can be downloaded here. A few updates since the schedule was mailed out to members: Peter Orwick of ASI and Dustin Van Liew of Public Lands Council will be speaking Saturday afternoon. The annual awards presented by the Utah Wool Growers Association will be presented at the Saturday banquet.
Please note the Utah Wool Growers Board of Director’s meeting on Friday morning has been moved up to 8 - 10 am Friday morning. All members are welcome to join.
A general business and voting meeting for Utah Wool Growers will follow from 10-11 am Friday morning. There are 8 Board of Directors positions up for election. We will be electing only 5 positions in an effort to trim the board of directors so it is not so difficult to have a quorum majority to transact business.
We hope to see you in Jackson Hole. We would also appreciate your feedback on the joint convention and if this is something we should continue to do in the future.
