Monthly Membership Meetings
For a casual get-to-gather, register and join our group: Trades Women Boots Up Hard Hats Off  Join HERE 
Some meetings are at a home, a café, a bar, a worksite, or a classroom.  We share time, support, a snack or a meal, a drink, listen to a guest speaker or watch a motivating film. There’s very little agenda and no Robert’s Rules of Conduct! Location varies and we move around to all parts of the Greater Seattle Area. This is were we meet new friends and find mentoring partners to get support from others in the trades.

Monthly WWIT Association Board Meetings
Held on the 3rd Thursdays/month at 5:30pm in SODO area of Seattle. Plan events, vote on funding and decide the path of our 40-year-old organization over a quick, light meal. We welcome members to join in and move up to leadership positions in this women powered organization.
