Association for Women Geoscientists
PACIFIC NORTHWEST CHAPTER
When the Spokane and Puget Sound Chapters merged to form the Pacific Northwest Chapter in 2007, the chapter grew to serve both Washington and Oregon. Our members live in Washington and Oregon and beyond to Idaho, Alaska, and British Columbia. To promote professional growth and AWG’s goals, we get together for formal and informal events, mostly in the Seattle and Portland areas.
