In-Person Event Policies: At this time, WRPA's 2022 Conference & Tradeshow is planning to be an in-person event. We want you to know that your safety, and the safety of all attendees, remains our top priority. While the 2022 Conference & Tradeshow will not be canceled, it may become necessary at some point for the format to change (online/virtual). We appreciate your understanding and willingness to be flexible while we work within the limitations set by our obligations and the current pandemic. Thank you again for your support and thank you for your patience during this complex process. Please take a moment to review WRPA's detailed In-Person Event Policies.
