WSEA Convention: Registration Now Open
The Washington State Elks Association will be holding its Summer Convention at the Red Lion Hotel in Pasco, WA starting Wednesday, June 13, 2018 with the Executive Board meetings. The Summer Quarterly meetings will be Thursday, June 14, and the actual WSEA Summer Convention meetings start on Friday, June 15. Don’t forget about the WSEA Welcome Reception on Thursday evening in the Pool/Court Yard and the Hospitality rooms.
Registration must be received at the State Office by April 27, 2018 so that we can properly report rooms, meals, and meeting space to the hotel by their contract date. The registration fee is $40 if your registration is in the office by April 27th. Our office will continue to accept registrations to May 31st with a $55 registration fee; however, there is no guarantee rooms will be available. After that date, you must register at the Convention and will have to arrange your own accommodations.
All rooms will be non-smoking at a daily rate of $116.97, including taxes. In the last few years, we have continued to grow this convention. Even though the Red Lion is the largest facility in the area, we have started to outgrow their venue. Last year was the largest attended convention in many years which is a good thing. In order to handle that many rooms, we have partnered with the nearby Hampton Inn to house the overflow. You will note that the registration form will give you a choice for your preferred location request. We will do our best to fill your request and house everyone we can at the Red Lion but it is very important that you include your phone number and email on your registration form so that we may contact you if we need to place you at the Hampton Inn. Transportation will be provided between the two hotel sites.
Hospitality rooms must be registered on a separate form. The WSEA will pay three days for the hospitality room plus bed removal. All other charges, such as tables, chairs, etc. will need to be paid at checkout. Each hospitality room must have a banquet permit from the WSLCB.
Dry RV parking is available at the Red Lion for $35.00 but no charge if you have a room. Also, please remember that registration fees and meal charges will not be refunded if you cancel your registration after June 5, 2018.
Come and enjoy a great convention and warm, dry weather for a few days.
