The Central, Wheat State and Texoma Districts would like to invite you to attend their joint summer conference July 30-Aug 1, 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 last year and we are very excited to back at this beautiful location overlooking the pristine Table Rock Lake.chateau

Please join us Thursday evening for a relaxing picnic overlooking the lake. The excellent technical program will begin Friday morning, and will include an opportunity to see new products and services from various vendors during the Table Top portion of the conference. The conference will conclude with the banquet Friday evening. The Allied Trades hospitality suite will be in The Lake Louise room and will be open Thursday and Friday.

For planning purposes we would greatly appreciate your advance registration. Please use the enclosed form to let us know which functions you and/or spouse/guests will be attending. Advance conference registration should be made by June 30th to take advantage of the reduced prices.

The room rate of $149.00, plus tax and resort fee, applies for single or double occupancy. Please reserve your rooms before July 6th, after that date availability and rates are not guaranteed.
