Dear WAFC Members, Illuminators & Industry Associates:

It is my pleasure to invite you and your associates to the 91st Annual WAFC Convention, April 21-25, 2012 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge in Phoenix, Arizona. WAFC's mission is "Advancing the Food Industry through Education and Leadership." We have an exciting line-up of speakers to stimulate our thinking, sharpen our focus and better prepare us for a successful and prosperous future.

Special thanks to our convention partners, the Illuminators, led by Headlite Richie Vail, who promise to greet and serve our delegates in a manner "second to none." Please take a moment and register online today @
