WALA Fall Workshops

Thanks for attending our Fall Workshops!  The presentations are linked in the agenda below.

Due to COVID 19, we are having to cancel all of our Fall Workshops in person meetings. Our venues are not allowed to hold large meetings and at this time none of our regions are in Level 4. Our WALA Board met this past week and will meet September 25 to decide how to hold our Fall Workshops in a Zoom setting incorporating key topics and presentations. We are also discussing holding specific region related workshop Zoom meetings to support you in your specific area and program designs.

Our thinking is if you register for your yearly membership, that would compensate for the workshops this fall. I will send out a more specific communication after our Board meeting on September 25. 

Dates: October 16 and October 23            8:00 am-12:00pm

Please make sure to register by paying for your yearly membership.
