46th Annual WALA Spring Conference
I hope this email finds you well and off to a great start to the New Year. We met as an Executive Board today at noon and discussed this year’s spring conference. It was unanimously decided to cancel this year’s conference and plan for our conference in Spokane next year. Our WALA president, Carrie DeForest recently sent out a conference survey requesting information on who was interested in attending, presentation topics and presenters, etc. We have had over 450 participants the past three years with only 32 responses to her survey. With the possibility of schools opening for onsite learning in February, we decided that many would be involved in getting started, preparing onsite lessons, etc. and this would not be a good time to try and facilitate a conference.
