A special thank you to our luncheon sponsor and GSBA Board President, Mona Smith, Attorney-At-Law.

We’ve got a heated mayoral race, a vacated county executive seat, four hotly contested city council races and a possible referendum on LGBT civil rights! And that’s just for starters. Join your fellow GSBA members at this year’s Candidate Forum for some tough questions and answers. We will be joined again by moderator-extraordinaire, Deborah Brandt, former host of KUOW Morning Edition.

Your attendance on September 23 is very important. The LGBT business and professional community is an integral part of the economic health of our region. Let’s make sure we are seen as the powerful constituency we are. Bring your colleagues and get a table at Seattle’s only LGBT Candidate Forum as we pose relevant questions to the candidates in the key races. Check out the September/October edition of the Perspective or the GSBA website for details on which candidates are attending.

Register online TODAY at or by calling the GSBA office at 206-363-9188.
