If you’re looking for fun outings between meetings, don your blue and green gear to cheer on the Seahawks at Lumen Field, enjoy shopping in Westfield Southcenter, about three miles away, or venture further for winetasting in Woodinville Wine County.

Need to recharge? Head to the heated indoor pool or hop on one of the treadmills in their well-equipped fitness center. If you want a quick snack, drop by their on-site market. Complimentary 24-hour airport shuttle to and from the airport. Free wi-fi throughout the hotel.

Will there be opportunities for networking at the summit?

Yes! The event will have networking opportunities prior, during and after the sessions.

Will the summit be available online?

At this time we are only offering in-person sessions.

Are there scholarships available for me to attend?

BIAW and NAHB are offering 12 scholarships that will cover the cost of registration to local association staff and member leaders here in Washington.  The scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  However, there is a limit of two per local association.  Further, the first scholarship for each local association must be used to register a member leader, not a staff member.  (The second scholarship can be utilized by a local association staff member.)

The scholarship covers only registration for the conference ($175 if “early bird” or $195 after July 31).  The scholarship also cannot be used for the registration fee for the public speaking training on Oct. 18. If you’d like to register someone for the conference using the scholarship, please contact Gregl@biaw.com directly, and we’ll make the arrangements.

Is food covered in the cost of the summit?

Thursday lunch and Friday breakfast and sessions snacks are included with your registration. All other meals are on your own.
