Registration for the annual Washington State Prevention Summit is now open!
WA State Prevention Summit
October 20 - 21, 2014
Yakima Convention Center
Convening since the 1980’s, initial
conferences were held at Central
Washington University in Ellensburg. The conferences were known as “family focus” meetings
and soon became known as the annual “Building a Vision” conference. In 1999, the conference began to be called the
Washington State Prevention Summit. It is
the one time during the year when people working to prevent substance abuse,
violence, and other destructive behaviors come together, reflect on the past
year’s successes, learn new strategies, and network. People who participate in
the Summit include parents, children, teachers, law enforcement officials,
prevention professionals, treatment providers, policy makers, college faculty,
students, and dedicated volunteers who are all interested in preventing
alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse in Washington.
