Conference Committee

The Conference Committee has the singular, monumental task of planning, organizing, and running the WEAO’s annual Technical Symposium and OPCEA Exhibition.

The Conference Committee sits from September through June and is responsible for managing all planning, revenue and expenditures for the event. We organize and assign volunteers, coordinate with local facilities and work with all WEAO committees to plan, organize, and run the WEAO’s annual Technical Symposium.
