Message

Greetings and Happy Fall Y’all! Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. There are so many wondering things about fall that I love such as the changing color of the leaves, the crisp cool weather, and pumpkin spice everything! This fall, your board gathered in Spokane to begin planning for our 2023 conference at our chosen venue, the lovely DoubleTree hotel. Our team of talented speaker coordinators are hard at work generating leads on speakers, lectures, and workshop topics that will not disappoint. I encourage you to reach to any one of our speaker coordinators to submit your interest in being a speaker this next year. I find our most popular and raved about speakers come from within our association, so please get in touch! You will not regret it. We were also able to check out a lot of local restaurants and sites that were fun and appealing. There’s even a really cool Speakeasy bar in town that I highly recommend. Finding hidden speakeasy style places is a hobby of mine. This one is called Cease and Desist and is hidden behind a bookshelf in a store front downtown. Be sure to log into your account through our website to see our newsletters as we will be highlighting all of the wonderful places to eat and sightsee. Be safe, healthy, and happy everyone!

With warm regards – Angela Hilliard, PNWD-IAI President
