We are looking for support in the following areas:

Membership Committee
Instantly expand your network and get acquainted with many of the amazing individuals in our industry. As a member of the Membership Committee, you will work with the 2nd VP and the Membership Chair to maintain our relationship with our members and our community, as well as contribute to developing valuable member benefit programs. 

Programs Committee
Let your creative side soar and join us in developing all of the amazing educational and social programs we execute each month. It's fun and rewarding collaboration where you will get the chance to provide your input on the programs, topics and themes for our monthly events. Get to know vendors, venues and caterers and expand your network while being a part of a damn fun team. 

Communications Committee
Fun, informative, quirky and engaging - just a few of the ways we like to craft our content and communication to our members. Are you a social media mastermind, or do you want to grow that skillset? Do you enjoy telling a good story or crafting engaging emails? You are exactly who we need to work with our Secretary to develop all of the amazing content that is delivered to our followers. 

Finance Committee
It's not all bean counting, people!! Not only do you get to work with the fabulous Monica Newby, but you also get to do some really thoughtful work in regards to governance and donations. In addition, you will get to know your fellow members better by occasionally helping out at the registration/welcome desk. Grow your network, develop your business acumen and have some fun.

Next Monthly Meeting

Slap on your finest ruby-reds or emerald-greens and join Seattle NACE and Birthday Dreams for an extravagant evening on the other side of the rainbow. On the evening of April 19th, 2018 at The Golf Club at Newcastle you will dine in the shadows of the Emerald City and show your support for our two fantastic organizations. 

Hold on to your hats and be whisked far away from Kansas to the magical land of OZ, where you will laugh in the land of munchkins, skip along the yellow bricks and meet all manner of creatures, great and small. If you get a little scared along your journey, fear not, for Glinda the Good Witch will watch over you along the way. 

After traveling through the colorful lands of OZ, you will find yourself in the poppy fields at the gates of OZ where you will dine in absolute elegance and enjoy some of the exciting entertainment we have in store for you. As the sun sets on the beautiful view from the top of Newcastle, we will turn your attention to your courage, hearts and minds by asking you to continue supporting the important work we do at Seattle NACE and Birthday Dreams. 

Alas, we can't escape from OZ with out a trip to the Witch's Castle for a final battle and a bucket of water (or martini). Bubbly concoctions and magical music will have you tapping your ruby-slippered toes and singing, "There's No Place Like NACE", until monkeys fly you home...

Don’t miss out on this annual extravaganza. Come on out, brave the witches and experience the event of the year.
