15th Annual WWCOA Convention

February 13, 2020
WWCOA will be holding the 15th Annual training seminar on February 13 of 2020. This seminar will cover various aspects of wildlife control in Wisconsin. Please note: Our convention is held the day after the Wisconsin Pest Control Association's annual convention.

Greetings everyone. I hope you each had a successful 2019, and that 2020 is off to a promising start. The 15th annual conference of the Wisconsin Wildlife Control Operators Association will take place at the Kalahari Resort, Wisconsin Dells, WI on Thursday, February 13th, 2020. At last year's conference we had some discussion about focusing this year's event on some of the species that keeps our work interesting. I am really excited about the presentations that we have scheduled. I have listed this year's presentations below.

As we have the past couple of years, the association will host a social hour the evening before the conference for WWCOA members. It's a great time to meet other WCOs and talk shop. We will meet at the Ivory Coast bar inside the Kalahari Wednesday, February 12th around 7pm. If you're not yet a member, you can join that evening to take part in the fun.

We will also have the raffle, certification testing, and vendors on hand. Kyle Smith from Tomahawk Live Trap has graciously offered to deliver any orders received ahead of time to the conference to save you shipping costs. A 10% discount is also available for WWCOA members. For details give Kyle a call.

Hi all,

I just wanted to send out a quick message and our conference agenda with the presentation times. We are fortunate to have a variety of topics and considerable knowledge and experience among this year's speakers. I am certain every WCO will come away with having learned something new that will contribute to the success of their business.

If you have any questions, please give me a call. I look forward to seeing you at the Kalahari on February 13th!
