Leadership Eastside hosts State of the Eastside Luncheon, Feb. 14

Leadership-Eastside-Logo This Valentine's Day, show your love for the Eastside community by attending Leadership Eastside's "State of the Eastside Luncheon," at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue. This annual event brings together the leaders, movers, and shakers of east King County for an hour and a half of engaging and informative discussion. Together, the attendees will generate a community report which evaluates how the Eastside is currently faring in seven separate areas: arts & culture, basic needs, education, environment, health & wellness, economy, and neighborhoods & community.


Led by LE president James Whitfield and a panel of local leaders, this event aims to facilitate discussion by, for, and about the community. This year's panel includes Rep Larry Springer, Bob Wallace of Wallace Properties, and Putter Bert, E.D. of KidsQuest Children's Museum. The luncheon is open to the public and will be held at 12:00pm on February 14th, 2013. Tickets are $35 and reservations can be made at http://2013sotesluncheon.eventbrite.com/#


Following the luncheon, LE will publish the “2013 State of the Eastside” report. If your company or organization would like to contribute information on how your sector is doing, or emerging issues you are facing to this important, locally dedicated document, please email sotes@leadershipeastside.com.
