WASARCON 2019 is coming together.  The planning team is working to bring a number of new classes to the conference and the pre-conference.  

This year we are concentrating our efforts in the following areas; 

  • SAR Team Leadership (classes for people who are the presidents or chairmen of teams, Leadership Development (we are planning to bring classes on how to build a development plan), 
  • Volunteer Management
  • Professionalism.  

Additionally we will be offering 

  • A number of K-9 classes
  • A number of medical classes
  • We will also be offering search management classes.

We hope you will be able to find classes that will help you be a better SAR team member.

Additionally please check our websites.  We now have a link to our volunteer page.  This site shows the volunteer positions we are looking to fill to help with the conference.  We need volunteers to make the conference enjoyable for all. Please check it out.

We also value your input and feedback.  Please use the links we have for suggestions and input

I hope to see all of you in Ellensburg in June.
