Save the Dates: the Council Announces 2017 Event Schedule

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON (JANUARY 11, 2017) – Mark your calendars for Northwest Mountain MSDC events coming this year.  The Council is planning five premiere events, beginning with the 2017 Annual Awards Dinner and Silent Auction on March 9th at the DoubleTree Southcenter.

The highly reviewed Annual Conference is coming back early, returning to the University of Washington in June, in lieu of last year’s December spot.

The most anticipated event every year, the 21st Scholarship Fundraiser and Silent Auction, which is held on the same month every year, will return on August 17th.  This year’s venue is the Hawk’s Prairie Golf Club in Lacey, Washington.

The Council successfully gathered and analyzed feedback from both MBEs and members for development workshops held in 2016.  A new MBE learning series focused on creating strategic engagement will be introduced in the Summer.

The complete schedule is available here, with updates uploaded regularly at the Council’s event page,
