Is there another NW conference in the works? I was unable to attend this year. :(
Sorry for the delay in responding to your comment! I'm not sure why I didn't see it until today :( I know Amber Vanderpool is having a small retreat in the PNW, but it's sold out already with a waiting list. AmblesideOnline is having their conference in Texas this year, CMI (http://www.cmiconferences.org/) is coming out to LA in August, so that may be the closest option for you.
