Join us in Vancouver for three days of speakers, networking, and fun! 
Each year the Washington Association of Family and Consumer Sciences (WAFCS) and the Washington Family and Consumer Sciences Educators (WA-FACSE) plan a conference to enhance the professional skills and provide personal enrichment for our members.
