Back to business

The WCB Winter Board Meeting is scheduled for Saturday, January 27. It will be held at the Bestwestern Executive Inn, 200 Taylor Avenue, North, in Seattle. The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. and end at about 3 p.m. Lunch will be provided, but we need to know if you are coming and will want lunch. If you are a chapter representative, which means you don’t have someone on the board from your chapter, your lunch is covered.

If you are coming and plan to have lunch you need to let Sue Ammeter know no later than Sunday January 21. You can contact Sue by phone at (360) 437-7916 or by email at sue.ammeter@cablespeed.com It is important that you let Sue know so we can give the hotel an accurate count. If you don’t let us know there may not be a lunch for you.
