AWSP/WASA Summer Conference

Spokane, WA
June 29-July 1, 2014

One of the strongest traditions for WASA members is the attendance at our annual WASA/AWSP Summer Conference at the end of June. A long established partnership with our principal colleagues is this event that is timed to close out our year. The opportunity to gather with administrator colleagues and wrap up the close of school, plan for the following year and simply reconnect with old friends, has become a tradition.

Programming includes national level keynote speakers, statewide practitioner concurrent sessions and other customized programming are all annual offerings. Participation over the three days includes participants from around the state as well as out of state professionals. Our numbers often swell to over 500.

The two associations rotate as lead organizations and a healthy competition exists to plan and deliver the high quality program we all deserve. We want to thank AWSP for such a strong partnership with this conference.
