Meetings & Programs

Our general Club meetings are held on the second Wednesday most months. Currently, due to COVID-19 precautions, meetings are held virtually via Zoom. When meeting in person, the Meetings & Programs Committee diligently searches the Seattle area for comfortable venues. Via Zoom or in person, this is a great way to visit many of your Newcomer friends!

Members eagerly anticipate these gatherings for their inspiring conversation, presentations on timely matters in the Seattle area, while enjoying refreshments or lunch. Programs have covered topics such as commentary by published authors, the Nordic history of the region, culinary commentary by a noted chef and radio personality, genealogy, sea life response, rehab and research, and more.

Non-members may attend a meeting while considering whether or not to join the Club. Email our Membership Director with any questions.
