You do not need to me a volunteer or represent a member org to attend! All are welcome. Meetings are a great chance to connect to colleagues and announce projects and pick people's brains. The in-person gathering is always at Planned Parenthood, 2001 E Madison, Seattle, WA. Please park on the street to save the lot for clients and staff of PP. Sign in at the reception desk and again when you reach the meeting room. If you plan to phone in, call the chair Matthew (425-226-5062) for instructions.
(2) Minutes from August 2012 are attached as PDF file and on our website
