Thursday

Breakfast & Lunch provided
Meetings Schedule: 9:00am to 12:30pm

Topics will include:

  • Mock Hearing - Don Evans and Jon Cornelius
    • The Washington State Dig Law Safety Committee is responsible for conducting reviews of alleged state dig law violations. A typical review includes a complainant (the person who filed the complaint with the WSDLSC), a respondent (the person who is the alleged dig law violator), a review panel of 3-5 committee members and a moderator. We use mock reviews as a training tool to make sure all 13 members of the safety committee are current on evolving issues and get the chance to debate topics of interest as they relate to the dig law. When we conduct a mock review with a larger audience, we enroll the audience as the review panel and ask them to determine if the dig laws were violated and if so, what the penalty should be.
  • Positive Effects of Increasing Your Advertising Budget
  • Legislative Roundtable: Join us as we discuss current law changes or initiatives in our states; what works and what doesn't.
