Thanks to all who participated in the Planning Association of Washington’s 2016 conference, held on April 20-22 at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Everett.  We heard from a number of attendees that the conference provided numerous educational and networking activities, including mobile workshops at the Boeing plant and Lynnwood city center, excursions to the Everett waterfront and Hibulb Cultural Center, an inspiring keynote address from Everett City Council Member Paul Roberts, and many informative track sessions.  Look to this website for updates on conference materials as we accumulate them.

Thanks also to our event sponsors, the Department of Commerce and the Department of Transportation.  PAW would not be able to offer high quality educational offerings like this without your support.

Next year’s conference in tentatively planned for early May in Chelan.  We look forward to seeing you there!
