Meetings

About Our Meetings

WSPTMA hosts 4 quarterly conferences each year. The conferences generally last a half-day and include a buffet luncheon. Conference costs are $55 and includes the $10 rolling membership fee as well as the cost of lunch and facilities. There is a $5 discount for those who register and pay no later than one week in advance. Registration fees are non-refundable as we are required to pay our vendor for all who register even when we have no shows.

Meetings are held from 11am-3pm at Foster Golf Links, which is located at 13500 Interurban Ave S in Tukwila.
