Conference Profile

The WASWUG Conference began in 2005 as an opportunity for district users to learn more about the Skyward product suite, share insights and network. In addition to being held on the west side of the state in the spring of each year, WASWUG now offers a fall conference in Spokane to better serve districts in eastern Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska and Montana. With these two conferences, we reach over 1,500 participants each year.
