Are you planning to attend one or more of the 2019 regional communication association conventions? Take time to review the dates and locations below and click on the links provided to explore the programs.

Western States Communication Association

Advocating with Excellence
February 22-25
Seattle, Washington
Our Countdown to #WSCA2019 begins shortly, and it is a mere few weeks until we gather as an association in Seattle, WA for our 2019 convention.  President Elect Rodney Reynolds and this year's program planners have been busy putting together a conference that will help us engage the theme of “Advocating with Evidence.” 

The PDF version of the convention program is available to view and search on the WSCA website.  If you find any discrepancies between this program and the one live at Attendee Interactive, please put your faith in the PDF version for accuracy.

While you’re in Seattle, sample some Pacific Northwest flavor with two unique tours!

Seattle Brewery Tour with Road Dog Tours
You'll visit three distinct breweries in three hours on a beer tour with Road Dogs (and get to take home a cool t-shirt and souvenir pint glass to boot)! 
Tour of Underground Seattle
Bill Speidel’s Underground Tour is Seattle’s most unusual attraction: a humorous stroll through intriguing subterranean storefronts and sidewalks, entombed when the city rebuilt on top of itself after the Great Fire of 1889.
