About Regional Meetings: WSIA's statewide membership is divided into six geographical regions for purposes of conveying news of interest to particular locales and conducting regional meetings.

Our regional meetings typically occur on a quarterly or biannual basis in different regions around the state, and aim to provide WSIA members with timely informational updates and quality educational content, with continuing educational credit available.

Our current Regional Coordinator is Dana Schleichardt with Corvel. Feel free to e-mail Dana with any ideas or requests for upcoming regional meeting programs.
