2018 WOA Spring Seminar
Madison Marriott West, Middleton, WI
April 12-13, 2018

On behalf of the WOA Education Committee, we invite you to attend the 2018 WOA Spring Seminar in Middleton, WI. The education will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 12th and will run until 3:00 p.m. on Friday, April 13th. This will be our second year in this new Thursday/Friday format.  The change last year resulted in increased attendance. Please make sure to thank our industry supporters in the exhibit hall for their generosity. In regard to the exhibit hall, we plan to have a full house this year, with over 45 companies attending. These companies are excited to come to Middleton to show their support of our profession as well as demonstrate their products and new ideas.
