Students – We Can’t Wait to have You with Us!

We are excited to announce a fee adjustment for the Spring Joint Conference – thank you to many generous sponsors, we are excited to share that the student fee per day is only $25 for conference attendance. On both Monday and Tuesday, that includes breakfast and lunch (you will be expected to attend product theaters). Registration is open now for you!

Challenge Bowl

We are excited for the SECOND time for both OSPA and WAPA that we are holding Challenge Bowl at our conference! The Welcome Reception on Sunday night (appetizers included!) will be our own version of challenge bowl. This is for students, practicing PAs, and any combination of the above! Depending on participation, we may have multiple competitions (students vs students, PAs vs PAs, or a combination of both). Everyone is invited – we want to make this a great time!
