Open Membership Meetings

On the 4th Thursday of each month from 3 pm to 5 pm throughout the year (except for the months of November and December) the Laboratory Guild hosts our Open Membership Meetings. These meetings gather the members of the Laboratory Guild together into one space so that we can provide updates along with hosting a special speaker each month. Education is one of our core values so we have built these meetings, therefore, we have designed our meetings to be open to the public.

R.A.I.N. Incubator – 2304 Jefferson Ave, Tacoma, WA 98402

We have chosen to partner with the R.A.I.N. Incubator in Tacoma, WA for this series of meetings. The R.A.I.N. Incubator is a biotech innovation hub that has a mission: “To educate our community and grow jobs, talent, and companies in BioTech for Tacoma.” Because the mission and goals of the R.A.I.N. Incubator match those of the Laboratory Guild we anticipate that these meetings will be engaging and collaborative. We are building a space for the industry to share and compare ideas and projects that are improving the industry.

The meetings have been scheduled to start at 3 pm with a half an hour of networking. After networking, the meeting will officially start with a short introduction of the agenda and introduction of our sponsors. The Laboratory Guild will then provide two short policy updates by members of the Executive Committee. After the updates we will hear from our featured speaker about the topic at hand. The speaker will be available for questions after the closing notes. The meeting ends at 5 pm with an invitation to join us for our Happy Hour just a block away at Black Fleet Brewing.
