Read below for more details, including upcoming meeting dates.

Membership Meetings

Membership Meetings are monthly forums for new and experienced direct service providers to learn about key issues and common problems, hear from experts, talk with peers, and collaborate on practical solutions.

Membership Meetings are geared toward service providers, and are open to the public – anyone is welcome to attend. For our in-person meetings, no registration is required. For our online Membership Meetings (April 2020, until further notice), please register ahead of time to receive the call access information.

At our meetings we:

  • Learn about topics relevant to staff working directly with clients, residents, tenants, and guests experiencing homelessness; 
  • Discuss current homeless services and housing issues; 
  • Speak up and take part in advocacy; 
  • Network with colleagues and allies new and old from around King County.
