The WRPA 2017-2018 President

“I am enthusiastic about the WRPA Conference in SeaTac because we are returning to the core of the Puget Sound and bringing an unbelievable collection of educational and networking opportunities for our members. Our association started this year off incredibly, with a successful Risk Management School in Federal Way... and the bar has been set high for the SeaTac Conference, but I think that our organizing committee is putting together an amazing slate of sessions and activities. This conference will definitely live up the theme of "Forging Links" by providing members access to the conference at the SeaTac Hilton from the light rail across the street and the transit system.  Don't miss out as WRPA will be connecting people, cultivating ideas, and creating excitement in SeaTac in 2018!”
