NSFWA Annual Conference

One of the key benefits of the NSFWA is our annual conferences. These are a great opportunity to get together and share the vast knowledge of our membership group. These conferences provide an opportunity for social enrichment and the perpetuation and assimilation of lost knowledge—only regained through the mutual sharing of ideas and experiences by our members. Our membership includes persons that are interested in many different aspects. Through the collaboration of our efforts, we can learn more about the many aspects of our subject.
