The 2020 WCA Fall Convention: September 10-12
Grande Dunes, Myrtle Beach, SC

UPDATE FROM THE WCA

WCA Members and Friends:
During the last meeting of the WCA Board of Directors, the decision was made to move forward with planning for the 2020 Fall Convention. While there is still uncertainty about what sort of restrictions may be in place in September, the WCA remains optimistic that we will be able to host the Convention in some capacity. Fortunately, all the speakers who were scheduled to speak at our canceled Spring Conference have agreed to make their presentations in the Fall and the Grande Dunes staff is also being very flexible with us regarding things like room nights and food and beverage minimums.
Look for additional registration information in your inbox in the coming weeks. In the meantime, if you have any thoughts or feelings regarding the Convention or if you know up front that your company’s current travel policies will prevent you from attending, please feel free to share with us via our email address: info@thewaterproofers.org.
We hope everyone is staying safe and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Best regards,
The WCA
