Conference Rescheduled & New Location - Due to Inclement Weather

Conference Reschedule and new location!

Date: Friday, March 3rd

Location: Legacy Emanuael Hospital, Portland, Oregon

As I am sure most people in the Portland Metro Area know, snow and ice are expected in the next few days including Friday morning. Our venue this year is at a City of Portland property, which means our venue will most likely be closed on Friday.  

We would also like to make sure that our conference attendees stay safe since driving in snow and icee conditions is not a strong skill for most people living in the Pacific Northwest. Of course, we know you are a wonderful driver, and its all those other drivers that might get in the way of you making it safely to our conference! ;) 

Instead, we have decided to reschedule the conference for Friday, March 3rd. A new date, also means anew location, Emanuel Legacy Hospital. Thanks to everyone on the board, city of Portland staff, and Karen Wertheimer from Legacy (RIO Legacy is hiring for an on-call position) for working hard this morning to come up with a new date and location.

Everyone's registration will be transfered over to new date and location.  

Please email us if you will not be able to attend and would like a refund. Refund requests must be received no later than three working days prior to the new conference date, Friday March 3rd, 2017 via to receive the full refund minus a $25 service fee. 

Thanks for your flexibility & Stay Safe!
