    Welcome to the Convention!

    Welcome everyone to the 77th Annual MWWDA Convention and Trade Show. In 2022, we will be in Missoula at the Hilton Garden Inn. Everything you need to know about the event can be found here and in the brochures below.

    We are excited to be together once again after a long unintentional break, and have been working hard to bring value to each of you!

    Please be sure to read through this thoroughly and, when registering, check all of the appropriate boxes so we have accurate counts for our food and space.

    If you have any questions, please contact Executive Director Dave Schulenberg at 406-686-3168.

    Thank you! — The MWWDA Convention Committee
