Johnny Morris and Mike Iaconelli Headline (NPAA) Conference
“The National Professional Anglers Association’s 2020 Annual Conference will go down as our best conference to date” according to Patrick Neu, the NPAA’s Executive Director. Neu went on to say, “Having industry icons like Johnny Morris share their passion and knowledge with the attendees made the conference an unforgettable event”.
“We are extremely grateful to both Johnny and Mike,” said NPAA Board Chairman, Brian Bashore. “These men are truly driven by passion and not only gave tremendous presentations, but they stayed following them to sign autographs and take photos with the attendees! We can’t thank them enough for the contribution they made to the conference.”
The NPAA’s conferences also included a question and answer session featuring 4 industry veterans and offered several other exceptional speakers during the educational breakout sessions that took place throughout the weekend. A full list of those speakers and their session topics can be viewed by accessing the 2020 NPAA Conference program at the following link: https://npaa.net/nppa-annual-conference/.
The NPAA conference is the venue at which the NPAA Board of Directors elections are held. This year, the seats that board members Jimmy Bell and Robert Blosser have held were up for election as their terms were expiring. The NPAA would like to thank Jimmy and Robert for their service to the association as past presidents and board members. Their seats were captured by NPAA Members Robert Cardenas and Randy Gaines who were elected to a three-year term on the board.
The NPAA Annual Conference continues to be a “can’t miss” event for professional anglers from throughout the country, no matter the species they target or the techniques they use. The NPAA will be making some big changes in 2021 with the event and plans to announce the 2021 dates as well as the location in the near future. Watch for additional releases on the 2020 Conference and the 2021 Conference announcement.
