GAWDA’s 2021 NW Regional Meeting

HOLLYWOOD, Florida  —  GAWDA’s 2021 Northwest Regional Meeting will be taking place July 21-23 at the Sunriver Resort in Oregon.

We are excited to hold this meeting given the fact that we are starting to come out of COVID-19 protocols; we are hosting in Oregon which has some strict restrictions in regards to COVID-19. The event center has ensured us that they can meet or exceed the safety standards established by the state and we can still gather safely as a group.

The primary focus of the event is to check in with one another, reconnect, and strengthen the bond within our organization. We have also created some roundtable discussions to help us navigate some of the interesting manufacturing and competitive challenges we face in today’s economic climate. Because of COVID-19 and other factors, we are categorizing this as a “GAWDA light conference” with hopes of returning to our normal format in 2022.
