2021 Convention Information


2021 HOACGA Lite Event – April 23rd and 24th

After reviewing the Kansas City Embassy Suites’ new procedures and requirements for events, given restrictions placed on all events by the MO Health Dept., The Board of HOACGA has regretfully decided that our 2021 convention, at the hotel, could not take place. 

BUT GREAT NEWS!!  Due to the wonderful efforts of Jim and Jan Seeck, HOACGA “Lite” will take place in Mason City Iowa.
