Building Bridges Conference - A Peek at the 2023 Banner Signing

Posted on October 29, 2023 at 11:32 AM by Cella Hyde

We had so much fun at the 2023 WACO Annual Conference, building bridges of friendship, camaraderie, and understanding with our peers, local government leaders, and industry specialists! We hope so many of you will join us again in Spokane County next year!

Here is just a little peek at some of the fun we got up to in September.

This year, thanks to the amazing WACO Annual Conference sponsor Randox Toxicology, WACO had a headshot photographer (Moore-Art Photography) onsite doing headshots for officials and attendees. After getting their updated headshot, officials got to participate in a super special signing of a 2023 WACO Annual Conference banner that was gifted to WACO's outgoing president, and the Thurston County Treasurer, Jeff Gadman. Here are just a few shots we captured of the banner being signed!
