The Western Weights and Measures Association (WWMA) held its 56th annual conference in September 2013 in Kalispell, Montana.  There are 13 western states in the WWMA and we take turns hosting the annual conference.  The process to determine the city where the conference would be held was started over two years in advance by contacting local convention and visitor bureaus and chamber of commerce offices for information on potential locations.  Since I had never planned anything like this before selecting a location was quite a challenge.   It was clear very early on in the process the Kalispell Convention and Visitors Bureau was going to be very helpful in selecting the best location at a price our association could afford and was willing to assist in any way possible.  Rob Brisendine gave me a tour of all the potential locations and prepared and sent out a request for proposal (RFP).  We ended up selecting the Hilton Garden Inn for our conference.  It is a very nice facility and the staff was friendly and easy to work with.  We received a lot of positive feedback from the attendees and were very pleased with the way the conference turned out. I would definitely recommend Kalispell as a great place to hold a conference.
