CFA REGIONAL CAT SHOW

We listened to your feedback and co-located our conference this year with the Cat Fanciers’ Association Regional Cat Show.  The show is in the same cat-friendly hotel as our event.  We have also arranged to have a book signing table at the cat show.  So there will be opportunities for CWA member authors to sign and sell books to cat show attendees throughout the weekend.
