Map with directions from Salt Lake City Airport to Weber State University


The annual WCAAS conference will be held this year on September 27-28, 2013 in the Shepherd Union Building at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. 

Weber State University welcomes you to Ogden for this event.  The Wasatch Mountains overlook WSU on the east, and to the west lies the Great Salt Lake.  Within an hour’s drive are numerous canyons and ski resorts; six national parks are within a half day’s drive.  Ogden is 35 miles north of Salt Lake City, home to Ballet West, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and the Utah Symphony.  

Within the Ogden area, visit the Union Station’s three museums, the Golden Spike National Monument (where the transcontinental railroad linked together in 1869), or the Hill Air Force Museum.  Salt Lake City is a Delta Airlines hub, making connections to other parts of the country convenient. 

The Front Runner light rail will take you from the SLC airport directly to downtown Ogden (within walking distance of both conference hotels).
