Hotel Discount Rates and Attendee List Scams

Please be aware that the American Fence Association does not sell member, exhibitor or attendee information to nor do we work with any third party service to sell attendee lists or to offer hotel rooms. If you receive an offer by phone or email to purchase a list of FENCETECH attendees or to get discounted rates for hotel rooms, they are fraudulent. Please report it immediately to either FENCETECH@americanfenceassociation.com or METALfab@nomma.org. If the email did not come from an address ending in @americanfenceassociation.com or @nomma.org, then it will not be a legitimate source of information.
