2013 Annual Chapter Conference
June 5-7, 2013
Celebrating Tomorrow's Fresh New Environment
Spokane Convention Center & Doubletree Hotel
Our conference this year is being planned in conjunction with the new Montana Chapter as the 2013 WA/MT Chapter Conference. Please join us for inspiring presentations, interesting tours, educational seminars and fun social events alongside the Spokane River.
Nearly 40 years ago, the first environmentally-themed world's fair was held in Spokane,
with the tag line "Celebrating Tomorrow's Fresh New Environment." The expo site was transformed from an industrial wasteland to a beautiful park, leaving behind legacy buildings such as the Spokane Convention Center and the Doubletree Hotel. Our culture has been through a host of changes since Expo '74, but we have regained that environmental focus. This is particularly visible in school design and reaches beyond school facilities to the curriculum. Now we return to the site of Expo '74 to think again about education, the environment and the future.
