In MOWA, we believe that networking with colleagues in our natural environment creates a win-win situation for everybody involved. The writers, photographers and editors all get to meet and spend a weekend together. Plus, the area that hosts the conference gets a lot of publicity!
Since we are a Michigan organization, we tend to gather in our state — whether it be the Upper Peninsula or the Lower. We have also traveled to Canada and Isle Royale.
How are these conferences beneficial to members?
• We get to experience comradery in our field in a very casual style.
• These trips are heavily subsidized by the hosts, so we can experience it all at a value price.
• We often have speakers, presentations and awards to sharpen our skills and build credentials.
• We get to “get away” and experience a new part of Michigan!
Our next trip is scheduled for Houghton Lake May 14 - 17.
