It's All About Our Members
What gets you excited about going to work each day?
People. 98 percent of our workforce is volunteer. We have highly trained, professional volunteers and our paid staff is amazing. Our generous blood donors and those who give financially. The stories of our clients is rich and compelling. All this gets me excited every day.

I have been a member of the World Trade Center Seattle for a while now and I find it one of the best places to conduct business over lunch and to meet business colleagues. One of the best parts of being a member is meeting professional mentors and Seattle's leaders who help shape this city.
