Program is held at the 7th Floor Conference Room in the 9th and Jefferson Building (908 Jefferson St.) in Seattle from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. In addition, the series is available to members throughout the state via webinar. Be sure to register online on the WAEPS website and you will automatically receive an email with login instructions the day before the lecture. Please check your junk box for the email confirmation as many webinar links tend to be considered spam. Or contact the WAEPS office: waeps@waeps.org
