The convention program is the most important and valuable tool for all conventioneers. Each person continually refers to it when looking for scheduled workshops, locations, and pertinent information about our vendors/sponsors. Therefore, it gives advertisers maximum exposure to their products and services offered in the ads. The program is taken back to the work place to share and to use as a reference. Ads for the program must be “camera ready,” in gray scale or black and white for printing. All materials are due to FCA on or by September 1, 2017.
