2019 Conference: Wilksboro, NC

Wilkesboro, North Carolina will be the home of the 2019 EFA Conference on July 24-28, 2019. Since the Yadkin Valley Event Center adjacent to the Wilkesboro Holiday Inn Express was unavailable for the original dates, the conference was delayed a week. Please note the new dates.

Christine Walker will be the hostess. The EFA Conference has not been in Wilkesboro before, but the surrounding Wilkes County is home to numerous Ellers, many hailing from the George Michael line. July 24-28, 2019 will mark the 16th bi-annual Eller Family Association Conference.

King and Double Queen guest rooms at the Holiday Inn Express (336.838-1800) will be available at the special EFA Conference rate of $115 plus tax. Check-in at 3pm and check-out at 11am.
