Conference: One of the best attended petroleum industry shows in the West is WOMA’s annual Washington Energy and Convenience Store Conference, typically held during the third week of June. The attendance and popularity of this event has grown consistently. It provides an outstanding opportunity for networking as well as learning about the critical issues affecting companies in general and petroleum marketers in particular. The conference also has a tradeshow featuring vendors with the latest technology and ideas that can help boost profits.
Scholarships: Children of any full-time employee of a WOMA member may apply for a scholarship through WPMA to help cover the expense of attending a college, university, vocational, or technical school. The WPMA Scholarship Foundation supports the scholarship program.
