This past Thursday, January 24, a social at SPiN in Seattle brought members of the Northwest Chapter together for both business and fun. Attendees enjoyed networking, food, and drink between friendly rounds of ping pong. Thank you to the Northwest Chapter for organizing this event, and enjoy the photos!
The NW Chapter held its annual Chapter Charity activity at Eastside Baby Clinic on October 4, 2017. The group stuffed clothes into care bags for children and shared a grant from the PLUS Foundation for $6,000 with the organization.
