Platinum is the new black for WSPA in 2017


Platinum is the new black in 2017. WSPA prepares to celebrate 70 years

by Marvo Reguindin

Next year WSPA celebrates a milestone of 70 years. To make 2017 a memorable year we’ve listed some projects and events we have on our list:

      1. A three-day Platinum Convention is being planned for October 27-29 at Lake Chelan’s Campbell’s Resort. A convention budget has already been established and staff will continue to work on marketing and logistics. A program planning committee is needed to choose speakers and topics and help plan the schedule. If you are interested in being involved, please let us know through the survey below.
      2. A member acquisition drive to gain 70 new members and 70 lapsed members is in development. The staff has worked on several member acquisition campaigns for other clients and is working on this campaign.
      3. Also in development is a timeline of major highlights of the past seven decades. A book was created for the 50th Anniversary, now all we need to do is find the highlights of the past 20 years. Member Diane DiWitt, PhD, was involved with the 50th Anniversary book and has been fantastic at collecting documents to archive. She says the best way to collect highlights is to interview our long time members. If you have highlights from the past 20 years to share, please use the survey below or if you have a lot of input, please email it to
      4. Designs for a 70-year mark have been created to work with the current logo. We’ve decided to get input from the membership on which one to use. To cast your vote on a favorite 70-year mark, please use the survey below.
