With San Antonio in our rearview mirror, planning is already underway for our 106th Annual Meeting, slated for April 17–19, 2025, at The Radisson Fort Worth North at Fossil Creek. 

Fort Worth is the 13th largest city? in the nation, with an estimated population of almost 960,000. And with an estimated 9.4 million visitors annually, it's easy to see there’s a lot to see and do in Fort Worth.

The Stockyards National Historic District features Fort Worth's western heritage, including daily cattle drives, year-round rodeo, and the world's largest honky-tonk. Four museums—The Cowgirl Museum, the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, the Cattle Raisers Museum, and the Cattleman’s Museum—celebrate Fort Worth’s cattle industry heritage.

Also known as the “Cultural Capital of the Southwest,” Fort Worth is home to a world-renowned Cultural District with five world-class art museums, featuring works by masters like El Greco, Cezanne, Rembrandt, Picasso, and Matisse.  

In 1909, the Fort Worth Zoo opened as the first zoo in Texas and was more recently ranked as the second-best zoo in the United States. The city is also in proximity to major-league attractions like Texas Motor Speedway, Rangers Ballpark, Cowboys Stadium, and Six Flags.
