We are closely monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19, and continue to prioritize the health and safety of our event participants. At this point, we are continuing to plan around this evolving situation, and there are no changes to the conference plan. We will keep all event registrants up-to-date on any changes as they occur.


Join us in Seattle, Washington from May 31 - June 2, 2020 for the 2020 NWRPCA Spring Summit.


The NWRPCA Spring Summit, formerly known as the Spring Primary Care Conference, includes the same carefully curated content that event attendees have come to expect of all NWRPCA conferences, plus innovative new workshop and skills-enhancing opportunities. 


Over 2.5 days, learn from prominent speakers, hear federal policy updates, and network with primary care colleagues. Event highlights new to the NWRPCA Spring Summit include: Region X peer learning, collaboration, and professional development.


This year, Spring Summit will also feature a One-Day Capital Development Add-on at $299.

Exhibitor, Sponsor & Advertiser Opportunities

To meet your marketing goals, consider a sponsorship with varied and negotiable benefits. Sponsorship at various levels are critical to making NWRPCA conferences fiscally viable and also affordable to health centers. All sponsors are featured prominently in the conference program and signage, and are also acknowledged in the annual report to stakeholders.


Exhibiting at our conference allows you the opportunity to connect face-to-face with community health leadership and staff. Note that exhibit tables are tiered in price.


Please contact Janeane Harwell for more information about sponsorship, exhibiting, and advertising opportunities. We look forward to seeing you!
