Annual Meeting

WWOA Board announces 2021 Annual Meeting Weekend will be held in person on September 16-19, 2021

In 2021, West Central and Chippewa Valley Chapter members will welcome WWOA members from around the state and nation to Hudson, Wisconsin in St. Croix County.  In 1852, Alfred D. Gray, Hudson’s first mayor, petitioned to change the name of the city to “Hudson”, because the bluffs along the St. Croix River reminded him of the Hudson River in his native New York.  Hudson is located along I-94 just east of the Minnesota border and the beautiful St. Croix River.  Check out these fun area activities when you are planning your trip.

Make your reservations at the Hudson House Grand Hotel in Hudson for September 16-19.  Call the hotel at 715-386-2394 and remember to mention WI Woodland Owners Association to get our 2021 special room rate of $70.00/night plus tax.  The hotel is pet friendly, and offers microwaves and refrigerators in each room.
