Annual Conference Goes Virtual!

Due to continued developments and still many unknowns surrounding the ongoing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Wisconsin Defense Counsel (WDC) Board of Directors made the decision to shift the 2020 Annual Conference to a virtual format. While this is a new format for our education, we look forward to providing attendees with the best programming possible. We look forward to your comments and feedback.

The WDC thanks you for your understanding.

Please let the office know if you have any questions at this time:
