The FOTATA awards are going to be previewed at the conference - but not presented. The deadline for FOTATA program entries is in December, so there's still a lot of time left for fall riding and entering that program. I'm going to bring the awards for the FOTATA to the conference as a preview, but they will be sent to the recipients in December after the deadline expires. It's a totally different program from the ATAA registry awards. People are still competing internationally well into November.
The ATAA awards will definitely be presented at the conference. I'll bring some nomination sheets with me, and some extra awards materials - in case people want to nominate someone right there at the conference. -Shannon.
