The Planning Committee is in the process of confirming speakers for each of these topics and invites interested speakers to contact NWABR for these or other potential topics.

As part of the partnership the Pacific Northwest Chapter of ACRP will work with ACRP to arrange for CE Credits for this educational conference.
