CIWA Summer Forum 2024

June 23 - June 26

CIWA is excited to head to South Lake Tahoe for the 2024 Summer Forum. We will enjoy a new venue at the recently renovated Margaritaville Resort.

In addition to an impressive lineup of activities, we’ll be playing our golf tournament at Edgewood Lake Tahoe – home of the American Century Championship and one of Golf Digest’s top public golf courses!

As always, we will have an awesome agenda: chock full of engaging education sessions, legislative updates, and plenty of time for networking (and fun!). Join our tight-knit community of members and industry experts to discuss current trends, challenges, and opportunities for growth and partnership.
