EDITOR’S NOTE: South King Media Founder/Publisher Scott Schaefer serves on the Board of Directors for the Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce.

With concerns received on public health and safety from its members and community, the Seattle Southside Chamber announced they are moving their 2022 PNW Sustainability Summit to a virtual/online platform, to be held Thursday morning, Feb. 24, 2022.

The event will start at 9 a.m. (agenda below).

“At the Chamber, we will always prioritize your safety,” organizers said.

Unfortunately, going online/virtual does mean that the in-person career fair has been canceled.
