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.

With its growing popularity, and the need for additional training, WASWUG expanded to two conferences a year, WASWUG Spring (held in March in Bellevue, WA) and WASWUG Fall (held October in Spokane, WA).

In 2021 the WASWUG conference pivoted to a virtual conference to meet the needs of our users during the pandemic. Virtual WASWUG was such a success that in 2022 we will bring you a hybrid WASWUG experience. All the wonders of WASWUG, including training sessions, exhibitors, and networking opportunities, will be available for in-person attendees in Bellevue, WA and for our virtual attendees through our conference platform OnAIR.

Breakout Session Training – The Key to WASWUG

  • Guest presenters are from OSPI, DOH, DRS, SAO and others, selected to speak on hot topics and current trends.
