“I’m super excited to get the ball rolling for Perry, our home away from home,” said Doug Uhlenbrock, director of events. “While registration may have just opened, we’re already deep into planning for what should be another outstanding show. I can’t wait to start talking about all of the new and exciting things we have in store for attendees who join us for FMCA’s 99th convention.”
