The WFOA Board hopes you are all staying safe and healthy. As we navigate through these uncharted waters, the Board has been working on how best to assist our members. We are in this together.

During these unprecedented times, the Board has come together and with heavy hearts have made the decision to move our 2020 Conference in Tacoma to a Virtual Conference. We will miss seeing everyone in person this year and look forward to seeing you all in 2021 at The Spokane Convention Center.

From your Education Committee Co-chairs:

Due to the current COVID-19 event hitting worldwide, it has provided an opportunity to think about the way we work and explore different opportunities to accomplish our job and accessing tools necessary to complete their job. WFOA’s Board has made the hard decision to cancel many of our live training opportunities but would still like to offer the high level of training and education we have worked hard to create. We will be working to provide educational opportunities while maintaining safety and supporting reduced budget expectations. Looking forward, we are working to offer web/virtual training at a lower cost to members and provide CPE opportunities statewide. Continue to visit our website for the upcoming training opportunities.

We have put together a list of links of informational resources.
