A message from AWBS President, JC Letourneau


March 9,2020

Dear Architects Without Borders Seattle community,

At the recommendation of our local health officials regarding the COVID-19 situation, AWBS is adjusting our planned meetings, events, and gatherings for the health and well-being of our volunteers and the entire Seattle community. As of today, AWBS is implementing virtual only meetings for regularly scheduled board and committee meetings. We will use ZOOM for these meetings instead of meeting in person.


Please note, in the short term, scheduled events affected include:

  • March 11th Happiest Hour – reschedule to a later date, TBD

  • Upcoming Volunteer Information sessions on 3/21 and 3/23 - reschedule to a later date, TBD

  • March board and board committee meetings to be held by ZOOM


For those teams of volunteers who give their time and talent for project work, the AWBS Board strongly urges you to adjust the format of your meetings to a virtual meeting. If you would like support to use a virtual platform, AWBS can support you with our tools! We recommend ZOOM for screen sharing and easy to use features, and can set up teams to use the platform. 


Project Leads, please reach out to Melissa at for support to set up meetings in a virtual format.


AWBS volunteers are resilient problem solvers, and we know the minor inconvenience of not gathering in person serves a broader community purpose in line with our own mission to promote strong communities. Thank you for all the energy you are giving to deliver life-changing design!


JC Letourneau
President, AWBS Board of Directors
