ANAHEIM, Calif. -- In response to the greater number of entries received for this year’s Visionary New Product awards, the Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers (AWFS) is seeking woodworking industry executives to join the current panel of judges.

Potential judges must have a major purchasing influence with a woodworking manufacturer, possessing a strong knowledge of shop operations. The voting panel will review applications prior to AWFS Fair, in order to choose finalists and then must be available onsite, during the event, to select the winners.

AWFS Fair is scheduled for Wednesday to Saturday, July 19-22, 2017 in Las Vegas.

All interested volunteers should contact Angelo Gangone, executive vice president, AWFS at Angelo@awfs.org by June 12.  Employees of any AWFS Fair are not eligible to serve as judges. Also see http://awfsfair.org.
