JOIN US IN WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON | May 6 to 8, 2024 at the Marcus Whitman Hotel

The overall schedule will be like recent years with a Monday afternoon CLT Intro session for new staff, board members and elected officials, followed by the Meet ‘n Greet. The Gathering begins in earnest on Tuesday with the Annual Meeting and continues with a variety of sessions until late afternoon Wednesday. By popular demand, we are bringing back Andrea Paul on Tuesday for her exceptional presentation on Human Resources.
