The Glasser Institute for Choice Theory, its Northwest Region and Glasser Canada join forces to host their biennial conference on September 3–6, 2019 in Bellevue, Washington. The theme for this year’s conference is, Choice Theory: Your Operating System for a Quality Life.

It is not unusual to hear members claim that implementing the concepts of Choice Theory has literally changed their lives. During this process, their environments transformed from being controlled by external stressors to being managed by internal motivation. You can shape your future as well when you employ these concepts as your Operating System for a Quality Life.

Take advantage of the convergence of so many Choice Theory enthusiasts, get caught up in their positive energy and celebrate the beginning or resurgence of your own transformation.

Meet us in Bellevue and

  • network with people who have successfully transformed their lives.
  • listen to speakers
  • continue Dr. Glasser’s mission to teach the world Choice Theory by creating a friendship with a new member.
  • find out what’s happening with the branding effort and determine how you can help and benefit.
  • and, if you are unable to attend, show support of our efforts by contributing to keep Dr. Glasser’s mission alive.
  • meet special guest speaker, Dr. Nate Hagens

We look forward to seeing you in Bellevue!
