Coming up! SAF’s Annual Open House

SAF-Open-House-Small-Ad Remember When: A Celebration of Seattle’s Past, Present and Future
February 27, 6:00 – 8:00 PM
At the Center for Architecture and Design


Join us for SAF’s biggest public event to showcase all that SAF does and celebrate and thank our volunteers who help make SAF a great community resource! Meet and reconnect with other SAF volunteers at the Center for Architecture and Design for food, refreshment and fun activities.

At each open house we celebrate the accomplishments of our many volunteers with our Bill Strong Awards for Volunteer Excellence.These awards acknowledge individuals and a teams for their outstanding service. Although the nominee’s history of volunteering for SAF will be considered, this award focuses primarily on contributions made in 2017. You are welcome to nominate as many volunteers as you wish.
Please complete this form for each individual or team nominee. 

We are also looking for nominations for our Annual Community Partner Award. The purpose of the SAF Community Partner Award is to recognize a local firm (architecture, design, development or related industry), community organization, program partner or other group who has shown leadership in inspiring people to connect to architecture and design in a meaningful way or used architecture and design to make a difference in people’s lives.
Please take a moment to make a nomination.

TOUR PROGRAM

SAF conducts high-quality, guided architectural walking tours of downtown Seattle and selected neighborhoods. The tour season begins in April and runs through December. Tour guide training takes place once a year, usually in the spring. If you are looking to get involved in other ways, we can always use help with research and script development. From time to time, we also need docents for special events.

YOUTH PROGRAMS

SAF offers educational programming for kids ages 5-16 with an intention to give students hands-on opportunities to shape their own community as well as learn about architecture and design. Volunteers can assist with weekend workshops for teens and families, school-based programming, or lead tours for youth and families.

MODEL EXHIBIT

SAF’s annual model exhibit is organized around a special theme and hosts physical models, digital models, and/or renderings. The exhibit is free to the public and seeks to increase public understanding and appreciation for the process of design. Volunteers play a role in planning and producing all elements of the exhibit.

DESIGN IN DEPTH LECTURE SERIES

This program increases public understanding and appreciation of architecture and design through a variety of lectures, panels, forums and one-time presentations designed to stimulate conversation and engage the community. Volunteers are responsible for developing and implementing all presentations. This committee meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month, 6:00-7:30 PM.

VOLUNTEER ENGAGEMENT

The purpose of this committee is to make every effort to give SAF volunteers the best possible experience for their volunteer service. Committee members are responsible for developing programming to support volunteer recruitment, training and retention. These efforts may include both educational and social networking opportunities open to all SAF volunteers.
