Do you have FOMO
(Fear of Missing Out)?

Join us for the educational event of the year!

The AOA National Education and Fiber Conference (NEFC), held in conjunction with the AOA National Fleece Show and auction, brings together alpaca owners and fiber enthusiasts from across the country to learn, network, and skill-build.

Just five minutes from the Cincinnati airport, this three-day weekend will consist of a variety of educational seminars from industry experts, discussion-based breakout sessions, hands-on workshops, and more! This is a great opportunity to connect with members of the industry both in-person and virtually.

Keynote Speakers

We are excited to present two keynote speakers this year from two very different backgrounds. Both keynotes will be streamed live for our virtual attendees.
