1. Join Us for Lunch
Thursday, April 22, 2021 | 12:00 - 1:00 pm
At our next Chamber Lunch, we will take a look at how companies and nonprofits are working together to solve community problems. The program will discuss the corporate philanthropy and employee engagement programs championed by leading companies that make our region a better place. The panel will be made up of Joy Stephens with the Corporate Giving Network, Pearl Leung with Amazon, and Paul Lwali with Friends of Youth. Eastside Pathways Executive Director Stephanie Cherrington will be moderating.
Join us virtually every month through August as regional leaders share insights on a variety of critical topics. Each program will provide an opportunity to engage and collaborate with business leaders during the breakout sessions.

3. Sound Transit Survey
Transporation revenues have dropped dramatically over the past year, as people travel shorter distances and work from home. You're invited to take a quick survey on Sound Transit realignment priorities and help shape the Board's decisions that will affect the Eastside and the entire system. Current investments in Eastlink are not at risk but Bus Rapid Transit could be in play.
