CIVIC/PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS

Seattle Black MBAs
seattleblackmba.org
info@seattleblackmba.org

The Black MBAs group is great.  I’ve attended their events and you don’t have to be an MBA.  I met several people from Microsoft, Boeing and other large and small businesses in the community.  They are very responsive by email and sponsor monthly events.  Great way to plug into the professional community here.

 

Seattle King County NAACP
P.O. Box 22148
105 14th Avenue
Suite C, 1st Floor
Seattle, WA 98122
Phone: (206) 324-6600

The Seattle King County Branch of the NAACP is the oldest NAACP branch west of the Mississippi River. Founded in 1913, by many of the founding members of the National branch, the Seattle Branch of the NAACP has always been in the forefront of the civil rights movement. We did a piece on the new President Gerald Hankerson, who was once serving a life sentence.

The website seems a little slow but I think with Gerald at the helm, things will pick up. The events page is dated, so I’d call for more information.

Seattle Urban League on Facebook

The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization with 82 years of activism and community experience in the heart of Seattle’s most diverse neighborhood, the Central District. The League has historically focused it’s community work in education, employment, health and housing with Seattle’s disenfranchised African-American community.

The Urban League has membership levels starting at just $25 and they appear to have a robust Board of Directors as well.  I wasn’t able to find their Young Professionals information but the YP president is on the board so I expect they also meet regularly and do events.
