Oh! The Places We’ll Go!


Conference News:


“How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is before it’s June.  My goodness how the time has flewn.  How did it get so late so soon?”   Dr. Seuss

From that line above, you’ve probably guessed it by now:  We’re almost to the end of another exciting school year, which can mean only one thing…It’s time for the 38th Annual WAPT State Conference and Trade Show being held again this year in the Palm Springs of Washington: Yakima!  This year’s conference will be held from June 22-25 at the Yakima Convention Center, and we are planning many special events and lining up great speakers for you.

Here are some important links to help you with your journey to the conference:

Registration Links:        Attendee Registration                Vendor Registration

Hotel Links:      Red Lion Hotel         Holiday Inn

Event Links:      Golf Tournament      Pine School Bus Derby

Mechanic Competition:      Regional and State Competition Information

Come one, come all, this is your time to learn about things, both great and small. Make sure you’re here this June because, in the words of the immortal Dr. Seuss:  “Oh, the things you can find, if you don’t stay behind!”

Website Navigation


As most of you are aware, there have been some changes in the appearance of your website since the beginning of the school year.  In order to streamline the inner workings of the site, you will notice that some of the pages have been moved from links on the side bar to the tabs at the top of every page.  For your reference, here is a “rough layout” on how the site is organized:

ABOUT US:  This page is exactly what it sounds like.  It is why we do what we do.

BOARD:  This page (and the two sub-tabs under “BOARD”) is designed to give you information about your elected board members.  In addition, the WAPT financial reports and board nominations are located under this menu choice.

REGIONS:  This page is designed to be a “news and information” about what’s going on in your respective regions.  This page (along with the sub-pages) is meant to be continually updated with information and events.  Please bear with us in these pages, as they are still going under re-organization.

CALENDAR:  This page is devoted exclusively to the master events calendar for your association.  It is meant to be the first page you look at to see when and where events are happening.  Events such as:  Chapter Meetings, State Board Meetings, Roadeos, Conferences, and Other Events are listed on this calendar.  We actively encourage all chapters to send their meeting dates and times so that you, as members, can see when things are happening.

JOBS:  This page is devoted exclusively to employment opportunities within the industry.  Again, we encourage all members to forward industry employment opportunities to the website so we can help our fellow members out in obtaining employment.

RESOURCES: This is our most exciting menu on the website.  All of our Conferences, Educational Opportunities, Scholarship Information, Mechanic’s Information, and Industry Links are posted here.  If you need to know about one of the many major conferences hosted around the state, this is definitely the the tab to select.

Thank you again for hanging in there with us as we reorganize the website.  It has really been a good learning experience for me, and I am excited at all of the possibilities that lie ahead as we make further improvements in the months to come.
