Chipsters Take Seattle!

Happy Friday, Chipsters!

Four of the Chip-In Team members returned from Seattle last week after winning the Technology Division’s national competition, “Innovative Planning Apps for Planners”. More about the competition will be posted later. While the team members were in Seattle, they enjoyed the exploring the city and learning new things at the American Planning Association‘s National Conference. Today, the team wants to share some photos of their journey in Seattle.

The four team members (Lia, Kalindi, Jake, and Ashley) shared an apartment in Capitol Hill while in Seattle. Capitol Hill is a neighborhood about fifteen minutes away from Downtown Seattle. The team would walk to the conference center each day and it was an enjoyable walk downhill. The first day of the conference, the team shared a wonderful breakfast at Witness.
