  1. Hello-

    I am with Habitat for Humanity in Thurston County and we would love to host an event for the South Sound- I agree with Sandra- it’s just too difficult to travel that far during the work week but I really get excited when I read your gathering descriptions. Let’s make it happen in Olympia! I’m sending an email to the email listed in the reply. Thanks!

    Are all of the meetings going to be in West Seattle? I’m in Redmond and that’s simply not doable during the week. Perhaps I could help arrange a venue on the Eastside?

    • Alex Ropes says:


      The majority of the meetings are in the general King County area, and we are working on branching out to other counties. We’re always looking for organizations up for hosting a Professional Gathering, so if you’re interested in hosting, please email me at ProfessionalGatherings@vannw.org for more information!

      VAN Steering Committee – Professional Gatherings

      • Katie Mahoney says:

        Hi Sandra – we also have a North King County Mini-VAN (an offshoot of this bigger group) that includes a number of folks from the Eastside. We generally hold a few professional gatherings per year in the Shoreline/Bothell area… we’ve been hibernating a little bit in 2017 but our steering committee is gearing up for 2018 and hoping to plan at least 2-3 gatherings for the rest of the year! If you’re interested in being added to that list feel free to follow up with me by email: katie [at] namiseattle.org 🙂
