Prevention Summit registration now open

Registration for the annual Washington State Prevention Summit is now open!

30th Annual 
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.
