More than 3.5 million people call Seattle home. And many of them are members of the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, though they might not know it yet. Founded in 1882, the organization represents about 2,200 local companies, and each one of their employees is automatically a member. Through initiatives that create jobs, improve the environment, and support the city, the Chamber helps prop up the local workforce. The team behind it also hosts special events such as forums and local trade shows that help business leaders network and their companies grow.

While it?s impossible to know what Seattle?s skyline will look like in the future, the Seattle Architecture Foundation hopes that citizens at least have some input and interest in the developments. To do this, the organization arranges a slew of architecture- and design-related walking tours, lectures, youth workshops, and volunteer opportunities throughout the city. Ideally, the activities help people become more informed and enthusiastic about great design and more willing to become involved when the city finally launches into space.
