74th Annual SMACNA Convention – Oct. 22-25, 2017 | Maui, HI

With record attendance, the 74th Annual SMACNA Convention was held at the Grand Wailea Resort in Maui October 22-25, 2017. SMCI had 10 attendees along with spouses and children who attended seminars, SMAC PAC Night, a product show and saw entertainment including a Hawaiian drum performance and an amazing Queen Tribute band.

In spite of 3 days of rain and one day with no power to the island, everyone managed to have a good time. Tuesday’s planned chapter night with Kansas City on a sunset cruise had to be canceled due to rain but everyone seemed to roll with the bad weather.

What else can you do?
