PNW JETAA logoPNWJETAA will be hosting 2014 National Conference in Seattle, Washington, and we’re excited to be hosting for the third time! The conference will be held from Friday, September 19th through Sunday, September 21st.

Conference Hotel and Location: Best Western Plus Executive Inn in Seattle, Washington.

Action Items for Chapter Officers:

As has become an annual tradition, we are asking each Chapter to bring an omiyage for everyone to share and enjoy (usually a food item), that is representative of your state or local area! There are around sixty participants; bringing a bag or box is perfectly fine. We do not expect individually wrapped or expensive omiyage!

Weather and Dress

Latter September in Seattle, is generally cool and partly-sunny, with lower chances of Seattle’s infamous rain.

Temperatures average around high sixties/low seventies during the day, and lower-fifties at night. The weather can be slightly temperamental during the ‘in-between’ season times, and we will be walking to a couple of the receptions and nijikais, so please be prepared by wearing layers and bringing a jacket for the evenings.

Please check here for more up-to-date weather conditions!
