VAN Conference Committee

code of conductThe VAN Conference Committee is already hard at work!  So we can tell you that the annual conference will be Friday, June 24, 2016 at Cascadia College in Bothell!  But we are still trying to decide the theme and keynote. Soon we will also be putting out an RFP to invite you our membership to facilitate discussions or lead a workshop.  Would you like to join our planning committee? We usually meet in person for one hour either before or after the professional gatherings once a month, and can bring in people by phone as well.  The next meetings will be:

  • St. James Cathedral, 1:00pm-2:30pm, January 28th.
  • Experience Music Project, 10:30-11:30am, February 25th.
  • Phinney Neighborhood Association, 1:30-2:30pm, March 31.
