2020 CWPMA Convention

18 Sep 2020 @ 9:30am MDT
19 Sep 2020 @ 10:00pm MDT


The CWPMA Convention is an annual gathering for long-time friends as well as an opportunity for new members and guests to meet the members of our Association.  The truth is that CWPMA is like a family made up of many members who have been with us for 20-30 years.  This year we grew with the inclusion of the Colorado Association of Distributors and the Rocky Mountain Food Industry, both of whom have merged with CWPMA.  Welcome to all of you!


The conference begins on Friday, September 18, 2020 with our Golf Tournament, once again being held at the Breckenridge Golf  Course.  Pick your foursome or join in with others to play 18 holes in the backdrop of the Colorado Rockies.


On Friday at 5:00 pm,  we get together for a reception, at the Convention site, Beaver Run Resort.  We honor our  President,  Steve Perkins of Perkins Oil Co out of Rawlins, WY.  We award the winners of our golf tournament.  It is a competition, after all!   And of course we celebrate the opportunity to be together once again.


Saturday morning we gather for breakfast and then our Key Note Speaker.  This year we are changing up our format, including more seminars on key topics such as labor law changes.  There will be an Association Update but shorter, focused on key actions.  And we will hear from endorsed program representatives about changes in their industry.


Another change is in our trade show.  We decided to experiment with a Reverse Trade Show.  Rather than having our traditional booths, our members will host vendors in a round robin event.  You know - like a dating night!  (Well maybe you don't don't know because you never did one of these.)  Our members are committed to sitting with our Associate Members and other vendors for a specified number of minutes as you, our partners, rotate through the event.  Additionally, we will have extra open networking time so that you can talk with people in greater depth. 


Finally, Saturday night, dinner and entertainment, always a fun-filled time of good food, networking, and libations, of course.


We look forward to seeing you in Breckenridge!
