NEWS FLASH! Registration for the 2018 Annual Meeting in Decorah, Iowa, will open on February 28, 2018 at 5pm!  Be sure to check the website for more information starting in November.  Meanwhile, save the dates of June 6 – 8, 2018.


Every year since 1992, WARP members have gathered to get to know one another, to connect, find commonalities, and to share stories and knowledge.  The Annual Meeting is where we do some of our best networking with one another, where we get new perspectives and new ideas about how we can further our work.  We select the next year’s board members, teach new leaders through our student scholarship program, hear about exciting projects, and we learn new skills while we’re at it.  Sometimes we get our hands dirty (or at least blue, green, or red!)  Our meetings are held in a casual atmosphere, yet we achieve much hard work, too.  You can read about the 2014 and 2015 Annual Meetings to learn a bit more.  In 2007 we met in Panajachel, Guatemala, while most of our meetings have been held in the U.S. at various venues around the country.  In 2017 we went to Oaxaca, Mexico!  More information will be available later in the year about our 2018 meeting in Decorah, Iowa.
