The WLSFA Board Members are responsible for crafting the WLSFA Las Vegas 2020 program, along with selecting the speakers for each session.  In keeping our commitment to ensure the program is unbiased and directed at the goals and mission of the WLSFA, the board begins the process by first assembling the educational program and then seeking out the speakers who’s expertise best fits the scope of each session.
