Northwest Festival Hosting Group
The Northwest Festivals Hosting Group was formed in 1981 at the suggestion of Wenatchee Applarian Vice Chancellor Larry Frack. He suggested that festival hosting groups should get together to discuss problems and share ideas.
The first meeting was held in Seattle at the Camlin Hotel and the main topics discussed were: (1) Packet prices; (2) recognition and acknowledgements; (3) housing; (4) transportation to and from events. The meeting was felt to be very helpful and it was decided from then on to continue meeting once a year.
The group has never been a dues-paying organization.
