It’s that time of year again!
This time, SEGD PDX is inviting a small group to gather with us at McCormick & Schmicks Harborside to toast the season and plan for next year’s chapter activities.
We can then stroll outside along the Willamette to watch the Christmas ships go by. Appetizers and drinks will be provided and there is Streetcar service and a parking garage nearby.

The Veterans Memorial Coliseum is one of Portland's historic gems - designed by renowned firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) and completed in 1960. After a recent two-year refresh, the Coliseum is on its way to being fully restored to its original International Style Modernism.
Join us on a tour as representatives from the City and lead designers responsible for the refresh share the story of the Coliseum's past, present and future. During and just after the tour, we hope to engage attendees in a Q+A session and conversation.
Meet at the Coliseum's main entrance. On-site parking in the Garden Garage is available for guests. *Tour starts promptly at 6:15pm*
