Holiday aerospace networking event Dec. 12

You can imbibe wisdom and eggnog while rubbing elbows with the movers and shakers of Northwest aerospace on Dec. 12 at a holiday networking party in Lynnwood.

The non-profit Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance is hosting the event from 4-7 p.m. at the Embassy Suites.

“PNAA’s holiday party is a great place for aerospace companies to network with industry leaders, to share information and to reflect on another incredible year,” Melanie Jordan, the group’s director, said in a news release. “We expect to see representatives from across the industry, including aerospace analysts, original equipment manufacturers and large and small supply chain representatives from composites, metals manufacturing, finishing firms, interiors and more.”

This year’s party includes prize drawings, hors d’oeuvres and drinks. PNAA, which promotes the industry’s growth in the region, has teamed up with the U.S. Marine Corps and is accepting new, unwrapped gifts for Toys for Tots.

To attend the party, register through the website eventbrite.com. More information about the event is available on the alliance’s website at www.pnaa.net.
