The American Fence Association (AFA) debuted the PRO Awards this year at the Awards Dinner & Annual Meeting at FENCETECH. The awards recognized outstanding commercial and residential projects in the following categories. The top submission was selected as Project of the Year.
Thank you to all the sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees who joined us in Indianapolis for FENCETECH 2019! The event would not have been a success without you.
In an effort to continually improve your FENCETECH experience, we are asking attendees to complete the FENCETECH attendee survey and provide your feedback. (Sponsors and exhibitors will receive a separate survey.) Our attendee survey is only 11 questions and should take just a few minutes to complete. Please let us know your thoughts so we can make FENCETECH 2020 even better.
The American Fence Association (AFA) was pleased to recognize six individuals at the Awards Dinner & Annual Meeting as Association Award winners. Each winner has dedicated their time and expertise to help AFA accomplish its goals and improve the industry.
