WDA is excited to be partnering with the Court Improvement Training Academy (CITA) and JustLead Washington to provide the 2019 Defender Leadership Development Program. The mission of the program is “developing defenders into effective leaders, advocates and agitators for advancing innovative ideas for clients and communities.” We welcome individuals seeking to develop leadership skills regardless of experience, organizational status or job description and encourage both those in traditional leadership positions and those who are leading in other ways to attend. We are seeking diversity in geographic, practice area and lived experience from our participants. The program is highly interactive and open to participants with different perspectives and goals. For a full schedule, click here. 6.5 Professional Development CLE credits have been requested from the WSBA for the program.
The conference will take place at Sun Mountain Lodge in Winthrop, Washington on April 25 and 26, directly preceding the main Defender Conference. If you plan on attending the main conference, you will need to register separately by clicking here. We encourage you to make your plans now to attend. Sun Mountain Lodge has limited capacity, however there are quite a few other options in the Winthrop area. And don’t forget–if you’d really like to stay at the lodge, try to get on the waiting list as a back up to your confirmed accommodations, as some rooms will open up closer to the conference.
