We have an exciting conference planned, including:

Events, Receptions and Parties oh my! | We’ve planned several great events for this year’s summer conference that provide amazing opportunities for networking and fun with your fellow attendees, including an Arrival Reception on Wednesday, June 27th, from 5:30PM to 7:30PM – the perfect way to kick-off the conference and your evening in Seattle.

The Welcome Event, will be held on Thursday, June 28th, at the beautiful Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum from 6:30PM to 9:00PM. Be ready to dine, dance and delight in one of the most exceptional venues in Seattle. This is a party you won’t want to miss complete with a DJ!  Shuttle buses will take attendees to and from the Westin Hotel and the event starting at 5:45PM.

The by invitation only VIP Reception, to recognize SDPA Diplomates, will be held on Friday, June 29th, at the SAFECO Field Ballpark in our own private suites. This event will include an exciting game between the Seattle Mariners and the Kansas City Royals… food and drink, as well as roundtrip shuttle service, will be provided. Please note, all SDPA Diplomates must RSVP via email to in order to secure their spot.

This year we’re very excited to be able to provide one additional event – the Farewell Reception. This event will be held Saturday, June 30th, in Grand Ballroom I from 5:30PM to 7:00PM, immediately after the last lecture concludes.

More Time With Presenters | One of the requests we’ve seen many times over the past couple of conferences is the opportunity to have further discussions with the faculty. This summer we’re excited to announce “Meet the Expert.” Presenters from several of the sessions will head on over to the Mingle Zone where you’ll be able to join them to continue the talk from the session.

Professional Headshots | Speaking of the Mingle Zone. It’s back and better than ever. Not only will the Zone provide light snacks and refreshments throughout the day, it will also host the previously mentioned “Meet the Expert” program AND the supersized FREE headshot studio.

What do we mean by supersized? To make sure you get the most out of this benefit, we have hired a local Seattle photographer, Jennifer Boyle Photography, specializing in professional headshots. The headshot studio will be open for photos on Thursday June 28th (10:00AM - 5:00PM) & Saturday June 30th (8:00AM - 3:00PM). The photographer will have a stylist on site to provide light hair and makeup for touch up before each shoot if desired. Each participant will receive:

  • 7 curated images which will be provided by the photographer in an online photo gallery within 2-3 weeks of the event
  • 2 of the 7 images will be professionally retouched by the photographer and provided in your gallery as high resolution images for download & printing

Be sure to coordinate your wardrobe for the day you plan to visit the headshot studio. The SDPA will provide white lab coats in various sizes for both men and women to wear during the shoot. To ensure everyone has a chance to get their photo taken, you may be limited to 7 photos.
