We hope you’re making plans now to join fellow colleagues and friends April 11-13 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Washington’s ESDs at the 2019 Annual AESD Conference! This year’s event is in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge in Stevenson, Washington at the historic Skamania Lodge.

We’re planning a special BBQ and anniversary celebration at the Lodge on Thursday, April 11 – the opening night of the conference. We’ve got a special program to honor the legacy of all those who helped make ESDs the robust service agencies of today.

A powerhouse line-up of nationally renowned speakers promises to invigorate conference attendees as we embrace the important work we do together.
