Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

After much deliberation, we have made the decision to postpone our Top Golf Event and Supplier’s Expo until 2021.  It was a difficult decision for us to make, and we are saddened that we will miss the opportunity to connect with you at these two events, but we feel that it is the right thing to do for the health and safety of our entire community.  Next year’s Supplier’s Expo will take place at the Savannah Center on Thursday, April 29, 2021.  We look forward to seeing you there!

We would like to note that our Student Scholarship Competition is still happening!  Students please remember to submit your applications by April 3!

Thank you for your continued support for the Ohio Valley IFT Section!
