The American Association of Woodturners (AAW) and The Furniture Society (FS) are parallel professional societies, each with a mission to help promote and educate their members and the public about object design and making, and associated tools and techniques.

FS and AAW are pleased to announce a pilot project – a joint symposium June 22 – 25, 2017, in Kansas City, Missouri. Program sessions, demonstrations, exhibitions, keynote and award presentations, silent auction, and trade show are in the Kansas City Convention Center, across the street from the conference hotel, Marriott Downtown.

AAW presenters and topics are online now. The FS program module will be Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, June 23 – 24. Members of both organizations are welcome to attend the others’ sessions – in fact, they are encouraged to do so! (FS presenters/topics will be announced soon.)

We are very excited about this first-ever joint meeting opportunity with our turning friends,” says Furniture Society Executive Director Bill Hinman. “It’s a great way for FS members to expand their horizons, explore new design paradigms, and share expertise and enthusiasm with a new audience.”
