Medical Assistants NW Regional Conference 2016


Welcome to the first Medical Assistant Northwest Regional Conference.


This year’s conference is a collaboration between the Oregon Society of Medical Assistants, OSMA and the Washington State Society of Medical Assistants, WSSMA.

We feel we have developed an excellent educational and networking experience for attendees. (Education Schedule)

Each state society has its own processes and traditions for conferences. We have tried to meld them as much as possible, in some cases forming a new process. Please enjoy yourself: we hope we can do this again in the future together.

Welcome to attendees from the Northwest region and beyond!


The passkey address for making hotel reservations for the NW Regional Conference on the original registration forms  in Portland isn’t working and the new passkey address is:

We apologize for the inconvenience this is a techie glitch that is beyond our control.

A new version of the registration with the corrected passkey address will be posted to the website.
