Socialize with WRPA Members

Can you believe we are just weeks away from the 2017 Annual Conference & Tradeshow?! 

As you start to solidify your plans in Spokane, don't forget to check out the evening socials. On Tuesday, after you check into your room, stretch those legs on the balcony of the Davenport Grand Hotel and meet other attendees over cocktails. On Wednesday, join us at the Mobius Science Center for a bite to eat and the chance to check out the exhibits. Then, on Thursday, there will be an exciting post-awards social where you can take a short walk through Downtown Spokane to the Nyne Bar & Bistro where you can enjoy some karaoke, dancing, and a few of WRPA's specialty drinks!

Get Energized

WRPA has two fantastic Keynote Speakers for this year's conference.

Our Opening Keynote Speaker James Bird Guess will inspire you as he talks about how he overcame homelessness, built a quarter-million dollar business from the trunk of his car and is now a world-renowned consultant. 

Our Closing Keynote, Phillip Tyler is a Spokane native. He has a heroic story about spending 16 years with the Spokane County Sheriff's Office in the Jail Division where he was the first African-American promoted to the ranks of Sergeant to Lieutenant.
