Travel Information

The 2018 RMPA Biennial Symposium will be held at Washington State University and the University of Idaho, just a short 8 miles apart from each other in the southeast corner of Washington State, and northwestern edge of Idaho, in a region know as the Palouse.


The symposium will be held primarily at WSU, with U of I events happening on Friday afternoon and night.
