THANK YOU for being part of such a wonderful conference!

What a great weekend of music, community, learning, talent, sleep deprevation, networking, music, and more.  We are SO glad you were part of it.  YOU are the reason we do everything we do.

We hope you will join us in Grand Rapids, MI Oct. 25-28, 2018.


Order your conference performance videos now!  You can do this HERE. (scroll down a bit).
It's only $20 for a high quality, professional video of a single Official or DJ / Venue Showcase performance (be sure to add the name of the act you want a video of when you order).
Or, for only $70 you can get a DVD set of ALL the performance, plus the Peter Mulvey's inspiring Keynote Address and the Awards ceremony.

FARM Board Of Directors Update

We had an election, a membership meeting, a board meeting, and your new Board Of Directors is:

Smitty Smith, president
Charlie Mosbrook, vice president
Brianna Lane, secretary
Lola Tyler, treasurer
Nancy Emrich Freeman
Don Simon
Cindy Morgan
Randy Styka

The Board Contact page on the website (look HERE) has been updated with contact info, term of office info, etc.  Feel free to contact a board member any time, or use the good old info [AT] address for general contact.

FARM has a working board, but it takes a lot more than your board of directors to provide year round support, and to execute the conference. If you want to be involved, to help us in any way, please email info [AT] and tell us about it.  We'd love to have YOU be part of the team!

Did You Take Any Photos at FARM?

Then send them to us!  We count on YOU to take great photos and share them with us.  The best thing is to email them to info [AT]  You can also post them to our Facebook page for the world to see.  If you need credit when we use the photo in a newsletter or on our website, please say so when you send the file. 

Other Details

Will you be at FAI?  Your FARM leadership will be represented, and we'd love to connect in KC this winter.  Stay in touch!  We plan on sending out a pre-FAI newsletter, and are happy to highlite FARM Conference attendees and their plans at FAI.  If you were at the conference, and will be performing at FAI, send us a link to your FAI schedule, or a list of your performance dates / times / locations.  We'll do our best to promote you, as a thanks for attending FARM 2017.
And yes, of course Champ will be there.  Just not running loose like at FARM.  ;-)

If you filled out a conference survey, THANK YOU!  If you won a raffle prize, we will be in touch shortly about the prize.  Either way, we may send out an additional post-conference survey to pick your brains a little more about your experiences - watch your inbox.

Also, keep an eye on our YouTube Channel. Heck, you should subscribe to it! We normally post the Keynote speech video there a month or so after the conference.  It was a great one, and you'll want to share it on your social media, etc. 

Lost & Found - we have a couple of pairs of glasses, and there may be more found items as things get unpacked.  If you left something behind, let us know at info@
