OWAC marches on…Fall Conference 2021


From OWAC Executive Director, Bob Semerau

November 15, 2021, OWAC general membership will convene at the beautiful and inspiring town of Sonora, California, hosted by Tuolumne County’s Go Tuolumne organization. Our hosts have spared no effort in establishing this as a landmark opportunity for our membership.

There will be pre-and-post conference opportunities, informative craft improvement sessions, dinners at impressive local venues, and of course our general meeting, where your voice can be heard.

Sonora is the gateway to Yosemite and the Sierras, and in an area spared by recent wildfires, the real star of the show will be the outdoor environment itself.

Registration is now open with a limited number of accommodations remaining available. Be sure to jump-in soon if you have not already sign-up at www.owac.org!

With so much to be seen and gained professionally, don’t be left out as we return to live conferences this fall.

The many years I have spent running my own business gives me a unique perspective on managing projects and creating effective programs. Coupled with the ten years I have been writing for Western Outdoor News these experiences have allowed me a set of skills perfectly suited for the OWAC Board of Directors. During my tenure as OWAC Vice President we have achieved substantial progress in the way OWAC operates and how we serve our membership. These contributions have been some of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences of my professional life. The further development of the craft awards program, working with each successive chair person, is among the many progressive developments I have accomplished as a volunteer on the OWAC Board. My interest in making OWAC work better, adding value both professionally and personally for each member, is the driving force behind my desire to stay aboard and complete initiatives recently begun. I seek your vote for re-election to the board so I may further the cause of OWAC and its membership and help it to continue to build as a unique, and outstanding, professional organization.
