WFS Conference

Event Banner
THIS EVENT IS 100% FREE!

Check-in Change: If you are staying in the dorms, you will now need to go to the PSU Housing office to check in and get your room key. Address for Google Maps is 625 SW Jackson St but door for housing is located on 6th Ave side of the building (between Jackson & College St). Ring the buzzer located to the left of the door to be admitted.


We are scheduling volunteers to be available in the Ondine Lobby to admit those without keys, as well. Please join us in thanking them for their service!


The 2022 WFS Conference will be held in Portland, Oregon from June 24-26, 2022 – the first face to face conference on the West Coast in over 25 years! This retreat-style weekend offers workshops, presentations, and WFS meetings from Friday evening to mid-day Sunday, with pre-conference activities on Thursday and Friday day. The conference will be held at Portland State University, a pretty city campus with fun things going on throughout the weekend long retreat including one of the biggest, and best-known farmers markets that happens each Saturday in Portland. Join us in the beautiful, friendly, and quirky city of Portland, where we welcome visitors from all over the world. All women using the New Life Program for overcoming substance use disorders are encouraged to attend the conference, and all expressions of female identity are welcome. 


Unlike previous years, this year's conference registration fee does not include lodging and meals, with the exception of the Saturday night dinner event "Seeds of Joy."


Please see the Lodging and Meals pages for information about self-paid options available to attendees. Because we are not including lodging and meals, we have been able to lower the conference registration fee to only $250 per person (Regular Registration Period). Please note: the Regular Registration and Late Registration periods have now ended.
