SIAF+DRT+NOMA NW | SOCIAL HOUR at The Center for Architecture and Design
Seattle International Architecture Forum, Diversity Roundtable, and NOMA | nw joined efforts to organize long time waited in-person Happy Hour Series. Our next event will be hosted by The Center for Architecture and Design located at downtown Seattle.
The Social Happy Hour events are casual ones encouraging the design community to gather together at informal environment, build new connections and explore the topics of the day. Snacks and drinks are provided as well.
This year we would like to challenge everyone including our hosts of the events to have discussions around the 2023 AIA Seattle Mission, Vision, Imperatives, and Annual Priorities:

community and climate.
