COMMISSIONERS SEMINAR WELCOME & AGENDA

Dear Port Commissioners:

As many of you already know, the WPPA Commissioner’s Seminar is hailed by many of your peers as one of the most important and valuable seminars that they attend.  These events are full of Commissioner-to-Commissioner interaction and learning.  They include important skill-building and training on issues that are central to our success as public port officials.

This year’s seminar will be held at Alderbrook Resort in Union.  We begin the evening of Sunday, July 23rd with a reception and we will end by noon on Tuesday, July 25th.

Registration for the Commissioner’s seminar is $335.  You can register on-line by clicking on the link on the left hand side of this page.  Your spouse/partner is most welcome at our evening social events; although we will need to know ahead of time to ensure enough room.

Please scroll down to view the agenda and also the hotel information.

Thank you and we hope to see you in Union!
