33rd Annual Conference
February 21 - 23, 2008
Oregon or Bust! The Trail to Better Hearing
The 33rd annual conference was held in Portland, Oregon, from February 21-23, 2008, at the Marriot Downtown Waterfront Hotel next to the beautiful Willamette River. The city of Portland, Oregon has been proclaimed as North America's "Best Big City," according to Money magazine. Though it's not easy being green, it's exactly why so many visitors flock to Portland for its unmatched natural beauty, bustling local scene, sumptuous dining and welcoming accommodations -- all effortlessly accessed thanks to its justly-famous light-rail system.
Nestled between the beautiful Coast Range on the west and the spectacular Cascade Range on the east, Portland sits at the junction of the Columbia and Willamette rivers. From downtown Portland, it’s just a 90 minute drive to the scenic Oregon coast or to Mt. Hood and some of the best skiing in the country, 30 minutes to the peaceful vineyards and farms of the fertile Willamette Valley.
