Board Meeting Information

Board meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at 5:30 pm, usually in the Lion’s area upstairs. Center members, participants and guests are very welcome to attend our board meetings. You may observe; however, participation isn’t permitted during the meeting. Please let us know if you plan to attend prior to the meeting so we can arrange enough seating by calling (206) 932-4044 x4. You may email the board directly if you would like to pre-arrange a presentation, subject to the board’s approval. Board meeting minutes are available for public viewing in our library.
