WCR&HCA board approves in principle 2023 conference

Planning for a WCR&HCA conference has kicked into higher gear, with the Board of Directors approving on November 9 the holding of the event in 2023, subject to finalization of the contract with the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

As well, the Board said it would have to see the cash-flow plan and budget, to ensure that the conference is a success.

“We are encouraged with the feedback the conference planning committee received from past attendees, who are excited at the prospects of reuniting members across the West at a conference,” WCR&HCA President Chris Lorenc said.

“Further, and equally exciting, is the fact past conference sponsors are happy to hear about, and ready to participate, in the next conference.

The plans are to see the conference in early 2023, at Waikiki, Hawaii. The last WCR&HCA conference was held in 2017.
