Nine More Conference Speakers Profiled in Current Issue of SEOPA News

24 Aug

SEOPA Conference Chairman Bobby Dale had the bulk of his agenda set in January for the upcoming fall conference at Kentucky Dam Village October 18-21. His motives were selfish. He did not want to be distracted during turkey season. The result is a solid lineup of 10 excellent sessions that fermented and grew during the summer. The seminars alone include the following:

SESSION I – Elk Restoration East of the Mississippi (Mark Holyoak-RMEF)

SESSION II – Roundtable:  Tips From SEOPA’s Award-winning Wordsmiths (Moderator:  Jim Casada; Panelists: Jill Easton, Jim Spencer, Jim Mize, Otha Barham)

SESSION III – Marketing Through Social Media (Bill Schwarz)

SESSION IV – Demo:  Wilderness Survival/Rescue (Glenn and Stacy Wheeler)

SESSION V – Plans for a Freelancer’s Retirement (Walter Woodrick)

SESSION VI – Archery, the Sport for a Lifetime (Joella Bates)

SESSION VII – Plans for a Freelancer’s Retirement (Walter Woodrick) – Repeat

SESSION VIII – Roundtable:  Women in the Outdoors (Moderator:  Karen Lee; Panelists:  Brenda Valentine, Tes Jolly, Jill Easton and Joella Bates)

SESSION IX – Scott Leysath:  The Sporting Chef

SESSION X – Importance of Pollinators (NBCI, Pheasants Forever, NWTF, SGI)

Throw in a keynote address by Brenda Valentine, bowfishing with the Feradyne folks, lunch prepared by Scott Leysath during the Shooting Day, new products at Breakout Day, the Tourism Showcase, auctions, a treasure hunt, a softball game, food and hospitality for four days, and more, and you’ve got yourself one fine event.
