Upcoming FlyOuts

Spring 2020 FlyOut

Branson, MO
April 30 - May 3, 2020

Each year, millions of visitors are drawn to Branson, Missouri to experience live entertainment, family-oriented attractions, and the stunning beauty of the Ozarks.  With over 50 theaters and 100 running shows, come join USPA members as we enjoy a sampling of the best of them. Activities will include a day in nearby Springfield, MO at Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium.  The 350,000 square foot experience features more than 1.5 miles of immersive trails and exhibits, and is rated among the top U.S. aquarium/museum attractions.

The weekend will include USPA’s annual membership meeting, at which time we look forward to hearing from our members as they help determine future flyouts for the organization.
