Area Groups

There are several  SDA chapters in Washington. Each group is self-governed with guidance and support from the SDA Washington Rep and their Area Group Leader(s). The focus of the groups vary and include exhibiting, show and tell, discussions and sharing on a specific topic of interest and critique. All meetings are open to members of SDA living in the group’s geographic area.
