2021 WANA Annual Anesthesia Conference

**The 2021 WANA Annual Anesthesia Conference has been converted to a webinar. More information including webinar registration will be available by September 22nd.**

Dear Members,

As COVID cases in Washington continue to climb, the WANA Board has been closely monitoring registered attendance for our Fall meeting at Suncadia, October 13-17, 2021. One thing we all could agree on is that the last 18 months have taught us is that we need to be flexible as the COVID situation can change drastically. As of yesterday, September 13 ,registered attendance for this event was very low. Should WANA continue with plans for an in person meeting at this juncture, the membership would incur a significant financial loss.

After much thought and debate, the WANA Board has decided to postpone the in person meeting at Suncadia until the Fall of 2022. The WANA board considered the fiduciary responsibility to the membership, as well as the health and safety of our members when making this difficult decision.

Thank you to those that have already registered for this meeting. Our executive director and continuing education committee team will be in touch as to the next steps. We will now mobilize and expedite processes to convert the planned meeting to a webinar format. It is our hope that more people will now be able to attend the meeting.

We appreciate the understanding and flexibility of the membership. These are frustrating times but we will persevere.

Please be on the watch for additional information as this situation evolves.

Stay safe.

Darryl DuVall, CRNA, DNP

President-elect, WANA

WANA Educational Conferences

The Washington Association of Nurse Anesthetists (WANA) has sponsored educational conferences for the past 40 years in an effort to provide the people of Washington State the highest quality anesthesia care available.

These educational conferences offer a multitude of opportunities to introduce new technology, pharmaceuticals, and patient care improvement systems.

With the realization that these conferences are the venue to introduce new and current products to providers who make the decisions to obtain technology for their institutions, the value of vendor participation is self-evident.

We offer a three-tiered partnership opportunity for all vendors interested in supporting Washington Association of Nurse Anesthetists. Within this partnership agreement, we offer the vendor additional ways to communicate with our members beyond exhibiting at the educational conferences.

If you have any questions, please contact WANA Executive Director JoAnn Kaiser at wana1@comcast.net.
