We have negotiated with the venue for a breakfast buffet voucher for each attending member to use on whichever morning is most convenient for them during their stay. Also for those planning on extending their stay either before or after the convention, Holiday Inn is guaranteeing the Convention room rate of $97.00 plus tax for three (3) days on either side. Please let the Holiday Inn staff know when you are making your reservation that this is for the WAGS Convention in order to be guaranteed the rate for our block of rooms.
WAGS Conventions are a wonderful opportunity for learning, meeting new members, seeing more iron and aluminum than you’ve ever seen before, sharing knowledge and finding that special item that has been eluding you. It’s also the only time that the membership meets to make decisions at its annual business meeting. All members are invited and encouraged to attend.
On behalf of the local host committee, I encourage and welcome everyone to “Meet Me in St. Louie” for the 2014 WAGS Annual Convention. We look forward to getting to know those of you we haven’t met and rekindling friendships with those we already know for a great time in the Gateway City.
Additional details about costs, dates, agenda, etc. are available to WAGS members on the WAGS Forum.
REMEMBER: You must be a member of WAGS in advance of the convention in order to come to the convention. This is a hard an fast rule, as we have to have head counts to the HOTEL in advance. So if you even think that you may want to attend, get your application into WAGS ASAP.
