Park City, Utah’s Grand Summit Lodge at the Canyons Resort, site of the Park City WT Symposium

National WT Symposium  CANCELLED

Update: (6.2.20) – the OBH Council has decided to cancel the 2020 WTS in Park City.  We determined that most programs would be unable to risk sending their staff to this year’s event, so in the best interest of protecting the health and safety of our participants we are not going to be hosting an in-person Symposium in 2020.  There is still some ongoing discussion around offering some portion of the Symposium in an online virtual format, so stay tuned for updates on that front.  For more info, please email Jim Lavin (WTS Event director) at


{CANCELLED}The 2020 WTS_UT Program text will be available for download after June 2020.

The program contains the full list of workshops, with times, course descriptions and presenter bios.

Please note that there will be NO printed program or schedule onsite.  We encourage all participants to download the conference app which contains all of this material.  If you will not have access to a smart-phone to download the app, please feel free to download the schedule page above.
