The Central, Wheat State and Texoma Districts met at the end of July in Branson, Missouri, for their annual joint districts’ meeting. More than 100 people attended.

Around 30 golfers came in early to play a scramble at the Pointe Branson at Pointe Royale Golf Course on Thursday. There were 11 presentations at the meeting with 13 exhibitors in the table top expo.

The Chateau on the Lake once again provided a beautiful backdrop for a very successful meeting, the first since 2019 due to COVID. There were over 60 milling professionals in attendance, along with more than 40 spouses and other family members.

A short leadership meeting was held at the Friday morning breakfast.  The technical speaker presentations were very valuable, as well as the networking with other millers at the lunch and excellent banquet on Friday evening, which included the installation of the new and returning Central, Wheat State & Texoma District officers. There was a welcome picnic on Thursday evening.
A hospitality suite provided a central hub where attendees were able to relax and reflect on the past year-and-a-half.
