Labor Relations Institute

We have made the difficult decision to cancel Labor Relations Institute, which was scheduled for May 6-8 in Yakima.

This difficult decision was made with deference to the recommendations of local, state, and federal leaders and public health officials, and with concern for the safety of conference attendees, sponsors, speakers, vendors, and staff.

Cancellation fees and refunds: Cancellation fees will be waived, and full refunds will be given for registration costs in the form of payment we received. AWC will work as quickly as possible to cancel all registrations and process full refunds. AWC will also work individually with speakers, vendors, and sponsors. Please allow up to three weeks processing time.

Lodging: If you made lodging arrangements, please contact the hotel directly to cancel your reservation and let them know Labor Relations Institute has been cancelled due to COVID-19. Please call and cancel by March 31. AWC is not responsible for any travel or lodging related expenses.

If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact
