Central, Wheat State and Texoma Districts’ Joint Summer Conference

On July 30-August 1, the Central, Wheat State and Texoma districts met for their joint summer conference at The Chateau on the Lake in Branson, MO. This is the second year we have held our conference in Branson. We had great attendance and were very excited to back at this beautiful location overlooking the pristine Table Rock Lake.


On Thursday evening we held a relaxing picnic overlooking the lake. Friday started with excellent technical programs and included an opportunity to see new products and services from various vendors during the Table Top portion of the conference. The conference concluded with the banquet Friday evening.

There was a golf tournament on Saturday morning at the Buffalo Ridge Golf Course. Play began at 7:30 a.m., and there were approximately 20 golfers. Awards were presented at the course once everyone had finished.

After the conference some people stayed to take advantage of the many entertainment options available in and around Branson. We look forward to being back at the Chateau on the Lake in 2016.
