Welcome to the Cascadia Chapter of SAVE International
The Cascadia Chapter of SAVE welcomes you. We have an active Chapter dedicated to providing you with networking opportunities, resources, and presentations relevant to the value improvement industry, be it Value Engineering, Six Sigma, Lean, or any of the many disciplines dedicated to improving the value of your programs, projects, and processes.
Our Chapter boundaries encompass Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska and western Canada. While we meet where the bulk of our active members reside, in the Puget Sound area of Washington, we encourage participation from all of our members wherever they may be. To assist in increasing the collaboration between members we have purchased a laptop computer along with audio/video connections. Having this will enable us to stream our chapter meetings live so those that wish can participate remotely.
In 2018/2019 the Chapter will change to quarterly meetings, on the second Wednesdays of April, June (at the SAVE International Conference), October 2018 and January and April of 2019.
As we approach the election of Board members for the 2018/2019 year, I want to encourage you to participate in our Board Member election and to monitor the updates to our program schedule on the website. We have meetings in the Seattle Metropolitan Area and Olympia, WA. We look forward to holding a few meetings outside the greater Seattle area this coming year; in fact, if you have venue suggestions, contact our current Chapter Secretary Ann Jamison at Ann@TeamRHA.com. In addition, we are always looking for interesting presentations or activities. If you have an idea for a presentation, project tour or other activity let Ann know and she will bring it to the Board.
We look forward to seeing you at a future event. If you can’t be there in person, each emailed event invitation includes information about our virtual meeting connection.
