We are pleased to announce that the Washington State Coalition for Language Access (WASCLA) will hold its 13th LANGUAGE ACCESS SUMMIT on Friday, October 19, 2018 in Lacey, Washington.  Our theme this year is "Together Everyone Achieves More: Bringing Partners Together for Effective Language Services" and we will be focusing on putting the puzzle pieces together to ensure that the components of  successful language access systems serve limited English proficient and Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing individuals. At WASCLA Summit 2018, we’ll share highlights from successful  programs and best practices for improving services.
