Photos: 2024 Union Leadership Conference

Union leaders from 32 local units converged to celebrate victories, hear from labor leaders, and learn how to strengthen nursing's voice.

WSNA’s Union Leadership Conference was held at Campbell’s Resort in Chelan from April 28-30, 2024, with record-breaking attendance. Originally planned for 150 participants, the event sold out quickly, prompting the creation of overflow capacity to accommodate 192 nurse leaders representing 32 local units across Washington state.


The conference spotlighted critical topics including the new staffing law, workplace violence, and equity advocacy. Prominent speakers included April Sims, president of the Washington State Labor Council, and Randi Weingarten, president of AFT, our national union.


Attendees celebrated victories and achievements during a Champions of Change themed awards dinner.


The Union Leadership Conference is held every two years as part of WSNA’s efforts to strengthen the voice of nurses at the local unit and state level.


We are grateful to all the union leaders and speakers whose attendance and contributions made this conference meaningful. Watch the video recap below!
