The 2014 National Conference will be held at the Best Western Executive Inn Plus in Seattle, Washington. Delegates will be staying there for both the official Conference nights of September 19th and 20th, and for the optional ‘third night’ of September 18th!
Please note that PNWJETAA and the National Conference Committee will not be covering the Optional Third Night; this will be pulled from each chapter’s personal GiA and will be paid, by check, directly to PNWJETAA. We will be issuing an invoice for the optional third night that each chapter will submit in their annual Treasurer’s report.
The Best Western is a six-minute walk from the Monorail Station at the Seattle Center
