Food Shippers of America

RWI Transportation LLC
Start networking early! All registered attendees, golfers and non-golfers are invited to join us for a buffet luncheon Sunday, February 24, 2013, on the ballroom lawn from noon to 2 p.m. In addition to our annual FSA Golf Tournament, for 2013 we'll have a Round Robin Mixed Couples Tennis Tournament. This should be another exciting event and a chance to grab your partner and challenge other conference attendees while expanding your networking opportunities. Sign up early for an enjoyable afternoon on the court. New for 2013, and a suggestion from our survey, is our Shipper/Receiver First-Time Attendees Welcome Reception. This relaxed setting offers a chance for first-time attendees to meet the Food Shippers of America Board and Planning Committee as well as other shippers/receivers. Last, but not least, is the expansion of the John J. Murphy College Scholarship Awards. For 2013, FSA has expanded the scholarship funds to three deserving applicants. So if you are an active member of Food Shippers of America, we encourage you to get the word out in your organization and submit the scholarship application.
Registration for both conference and hotel for our 58th Annual Food Shippers of America Conference is
under way.
