Wheat State

Central, Wheat State and Texoma Districts’ Summer Conference

chateauThe Central, Wheat State and Texoma Districts met on July 28-30 at the Chateau on the Lake in Branson, MO.  Approximately 75 milling professionals participated in the technical session on Friday, while another 20 family members joined for the social activities on Thursday and Friday nights.

There was a table top exhibition with around 15 exhibitors, where attendees had the opportunity to meet with suppliers and learn more about the latest trends and technology.

District officers were elected and confirmed during the afternoon business meetings. A full listing of the officers is listed on this page.

On Saturday, more than 30 golfers participated in the scramble at the Buffalo Ridge Golf Course. Prizes were awarded upon conclusion of the full round of golf. Pictures from the event are available at:
