Get to Know: Ethnic Heritage Council, Seattle Washington

I'm super thrilled to share with you that I'm a newly elected member of the Board of Directors of Seattle's Ethnic Heritage Council.

If you've spent any amount of time in Seattle, you've likely seen the Ethnic Heritage Council at work through one of their many events that they produce or sponsor throughout the year.

With offices based in the Seattle Center, Seattle's cultural hub and home to the Space Needle, EMP, Science Center, Children's Theatre, and many more, the Ethnic Heritage Council is behind many of the festive events that liven up the Center House throughout the year.  Check out the beautiful event photo galleries.

EHC is probably best known for their Annual Naturalization Ceremony which, for the past 26 years has taken place on the Fourth of July, and during which thousands of new American citizens have been sworn in.

The Ethnic Heritage Council (EHC) of Seattle, Washington was established in 1980 and has grown in membership from a few individuals, to hundreds of ethnic and cultural organizations and individuals.

EHC's mission is to preserve and promote ethnic and cultural traditions, foster mutual understanding, enrich lives and celebrate our heritage.

I'm honored to have been invited to join the Board of Directors of the Ethnic Heritage Council, and I look forward to using my skills in Communications, PR, Marketing and Social Media to support this stellar and vital organization of our community.

Please visit the Ethnic Heritage Council website at http://www.ethnicheritagecouncil.org and get to know this fabulous organization dedicated to celebrating the ethnic diversity of our region.

Stay tuned to Musings for occasional updates on EHC events, such as the Ethnic Springfest on May 20, 2011 produced by Ethnic Heritage Council. As always, if you have any questions or comments, feel free to leave them in this post, or email me.
