About Us

Welcome to the Washington State Tumor Registrars Association website. The purpose of this Association is to provide a communication link between Association members in the State of Washington, stimulate self-improvement through certification and continuing education, and achieve standardization of all tumor registry procedures and data collection in accordance with state and national requirements.

Membership in WSTRA is open to anyone interested in the cancer registry field or promoting the work of WSTRA. Membership categories include Active and Associate classes with Active membership having the most membership benefits. An Honorary membership class is reserved for WSTRA members who made significant contributions to the association. Please see the Membership page for a list of specific membership benefits.

WSTRA also provides regular educational opportunities for those seeking continuing education credits. Our Annual Membership meeting is held each spring where the new Executive Board is installed. Scholarship opportunities are also available to any WSTRA member in good standing.

We welcome support for our educational activities from vendors and other sources. Please contact our Ways and Means Chair to find out about opportunities to sponsor WSTRA activities.
