2019 COMMISSIONERS’ SEMINAR WELCOME 


Dear Port Commissioners:

As many of you already know, the WPPA Commissioners’ Seminar is hailed by many of your peers as one of the most important and valuable seminars they attend.  These events are full of Commissioner-to-Commissioner interaction and learning.  They also include important skill-building and training on issues that are central to our success as public port officials.

This year’s seminar will be held at SUNCADIA RESORT in Cle Elum.  We begin on the evening of MONDAY, JULY 22 with a reception, and will end by noon on WEDNESDAY, JULY 24.

Registration for the Commissioners seminar is $360.  You may register online below. As always, your spouse/partner is welcome at our evening social event, although we do need to know ahead of time to ensure there is enough room.

Please view the agenda, register and view frequently asked questions (including hotel information) below.

Thank you and we hope to see you in Cle Elum!

       -    James Thompson, WPPA Executive Director - Acting
