The Westin Kierland - Scottsdale, AZ

Greetings Friends,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the Select Milk Producers, Inc. Annual Meeting and 30 Year Celebration Reception Dinner. This year, the meeting and celebration is being held in Scottdale, Arizona at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa. We encourage all membership to attend and invite those within your organization you feel would benefit from joining.

What's New This Year:

  • Room rates for our members and guests will not exceed $225.00 per night within our room block dates. This will be a flat rate for your actual room. (You will still be responsible for all incidentals)
  • We have included some navigational buttons on the RSVP this year (bottom of the page) to provide information related to this year's meeting. Included in that is more information about the Westin Kierland, a link to Book your stay, Dining Options, and the Childcare Services that are being offered. We do recommend that you book your dining reservations early, as a lot of these restaurants will not have availability in October!
  • Childcare Services will be offered for the two days of meetings, October 10 & 11. There is no cost to you for this service. Click Here or the navigation button for more information on this service.
  • Activities for children during the 30 Year Celebration Reception & Dinner on October 11.
  • We have added an extra day of celebration in honor of our 30th year, Saturday, October 12. Come to the Family Cook Out with us!
