Saturday meetings

The SNC meets on the second Saturday of each month at The Central, located at 500 30th Ave S in the Leschi neighborhood of the Central District.   Meetings start at 9am.   This is a breakfast meeting with the first 30 minutes focused on networking and engagement with fellow activists.  Complete rotating buffet and beverages is $14. (Entry without breakfast is $6, but no one is turned away for lack of funds). This is followed by our speaker’s presentation and up to an hour of lively Q&A.   Please join us!

The Central is one block south of Jackson St and the #14 Metro bus. And here is a map.
