Each year, every Wing has a conference with:
- General Sessions for announcements and wing-wide recognition
- Learning Sessions across all topics – for seniors and cadets
- Networking – meet others from across the wing
- Awards Banquet
- Military Ball.
Anoka has many cadets and seniors who have been nominated for Wing Awards.
It’s a great time to attend and support your fellow wingmen.
Every year, many VIPs attend the Minnesota Wing Conference.
