Young Professionals Summer Social: Seattle

We got creative… this year our Annual Summer Social event will look different. Rather than having 100 people at one event, we will be hosting “Satellite” Summer Socials! These IN-PERSON events will be mini renditions (5 people) of our typical Summer Social event where we enjoy the summer sunshine, BBQ, hear from our virtual speaker (below), and engage in thoughtful discussion at the homes of our YP leadership team! 

Each host will provide food, drinks, and swag giveaways for WPC’s most ambitious project ever….

#FreeMarketsDestroy
Climate ChangeHigh Rents | Boredom | Disease | Poverty | ....

REGISTRATION DEADLINE AUG. 1st!

WPC is partnering with Emergent Order, a creative studio based in Austin, Texas to launch freemarkestdestroy, a statewide effort to combat the rising tide of socialism by using a unique and unprecedented approach. At this event you will learn more about this project, how to get involved, and how to combat the cultural critiques of capitalism and free-market approaches.

Our YP hosts are scattered around the greater Seattle area from Puyallup, Issaquah, Mukiteo, and everywhere in between! If you don’t have a specific host name in mind, we will pair you with a host that’s closest to your address. If there’s a specific host you’d like to be paired with… please insert their name in the comment box below (after you choose your registration ticket). If you're unable to attend in person, we've provided a virtual ticket option below so that you can still tune in to hear from our featured speaker.
