Spring Conference Information

Due to many unknowns surrounding the ongoing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Wisconsin Defense Counsel (WDC) Board of Directors made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person 2021 Spring Conference scheduled for April in Kohler, WI and make the shift to a virtual format. While these in-person conferences are important, they simply cannot take precedence over the health and wellbeing of our members or industry partners.

We hope that you will consider joining us virtually on April 15-16, 2021.

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