Conference Dates and Schedule

The 2019 OWHE* Annual Conference will be held on a Friday and Saturday this year rather than a Thursday and Friday. This will hopefully allow professionals to take less time off work to attend the conference. Additionally, we will be starting earlier on the first day with a 3pm start, rather than a 6pm start. This will allow us to incorporate more break time and unstructured networking time for attendees throughout the conference. Review the tentative schedule here. 

Conference Location: Salishan Resort, Gleneden Beach, OR

After 4 years of hosting the conference in Central Oregon, the 2019 conference will be hosted at the Salishan Resort in Gleneden Beach, OR. Located 6 miles south of Lincoln City, OR, Salishan Resort is set on 250 acres of lush countryside with views of Siletz Bay. To learn more about Salishan and amenities offered, visit their website here.

Board Games with the Board

Join the Board of Directors on Friday evening after dinner for board games and socializing. Get to know us and learn about what we each do in our positions. Enjoy some fun, low key competition and unwind before a content filled day on Saturday.
