The 2016 WSNIA training conference was a huge success!

One of the attendee’s stated “I just want to tell you that this years was the best WSNIA, training that I’ve ever been to and I’ve been going for over 10 years. You have been doing an outstanding job getting top notch speakers and trainers. Thanks you for your hard work and dedication to bring such a great product!” The WSNIA board is truly committed to our mission of bringing meaningful, beneficial training to our members.

I want to thank all of the 292 members who attended this year and made it such a great event. Know that you’re work is making a difference every day for our states citizens and communities. Keep up the good work and be safe.

WSNIA anticipates offering additional training opportunities throughout the year, so please keep checking back to our website. Next year’s 2017 WSNIA conference will be held once again at the Heathman Lodge in Vancouver, April 24th – 27th.
