2018 South Central Regional Conference in New Orleans

In July, AFA combined the Gulf South Regional Conference with the Mid-Year Board of Directors and Chapter Presidents Committee for a super-charged event.

The Association was pleased to have Terry Stephens, President of Stephens Pipe & Steel, as the keynote speaker at the Welcome Dinner. “The industry knowledge he shared was valuable for the membership,” said Tony Thornton, AFA Executive Director.

Blueprint Reading, Key Industry Updates, and Young Fence Professional (YFP) training were just a few of the education sessions offered. Attendees were able to network throughout the event at the YFP Happy Hour, the Gulf South Chapter Event at Pat O’Briens, and the Saturday bayou Fishing Adventure.

AFA would like to thank the strong support of our event sponsors, including Stephens Pipe & Steel as the Welcome Reception and Dinner Sponsor. With over 20 table top exhibitors, there was a strong buzz throughout the conference.
