This year’s annual Surfrider Cascadia Chapter Confrence will be held in Newport, OR, a spectacular and special place to gather and share some Surfrider stoke! The 2016 conference, August 26-28,  will offer a wide range of presentations and break-out sessions led by chapters and Surfrider staff on current campaigns, programs, important issues, and organizational best practices. (Stay tuned for a full conference program) Our goal is that attending activists will bring back new skills & fresh ideas to their chapters! There will be plenty of time for the enjoyment aspect of our mission too!

The Cascadia conference features chapter members from British Columbia, Washington and Oregon as well as staff from Surfrider headquarters in San Clemente, CA. Click here to register and for any questions please contact WA Field Manager Brice Boland.
