Washington State Association of Counties Annual Conference
Chelan County, WA               November 13-15, 2012

FORUM & FUNCTION: Identifying and Communicating the Issues
Our 2012 conference theme is an outgrowth of the Association's Legislative Steering Committee planning discussion held in May. Committee members talked about identifying and targeting those issues most critical to counties as we move into the next legislative session and giving a strong collective voice to the WSAC agenda and counties. By attending, you will help refine core issues and receive insights into effective individual and group communication strategies. The discussion will culminate in membership adoption of the 2013 policy slate and strategy on the last day of the conference.
