We hope to see you at the Heathman Lodge in Vancouver, WA for the 2019 conference. Dates will be announced as soon as confirmed.
Special conference lodging rates are now available at the Red Lion Hotel Yakima Center and the Hotel Maison, both of which are located within a few blocks of the Yakima Convention Center.
