Taking care of our wellbeing also means having fun!
This year’s conference will provide robust opportunities for you to reunite and reconnect with your colleagues and old friends, and meet new ones. We’ll have a social with a DJ on Friday night, awards, contests, and raffles with prizes to win – all to make your conference experience fun and memorable. Closer to the conference, we’ll launch the PNWVC App where you can set your schedule, review each session, and download proceedings.
