2017 County Convention - Attendees

2017 County Convention Registration is now Open! 

You may notice a change in the conference name and that’s because this year, the Washington Association of County Officials (WACO) and the Washington State Association of Counties (WSAC) have co-located their annual conferences thus creating the 2017 County Convention. This partnership is designed to provide our members, affiliates, partners, and supporters with a unique experience that will offer professional development and peer-to-peer networking.

Where will this conference be held? This year, County Officials from across the state will be gathering November 14-17, 2017 at The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Seattle Airport in King County.

Not sure if this is the conference for you? Don't count us out just yet! We are busy working on our agenda and will be releasing more details on the conference and educational opportunities soon!

What is the last day I can register? 

While we don’t like to encourage procrastination, we understand you’ve got a busy schedule that is always changing. The last day to secure overnight accommodations is Monday, Oct. 23. However, you may register online until Monday, November, 6 if you don’t require a sleeping room.
