Welcome to the DMEC Washington (Greater Seattle) chapter. We invite you to attend one of our upcoming meetings and encourage you to invite your colleagues to attend as well. We strive to serve employer and supplier attendees through programs focused on a variety of topics in absence management, integration, prevention, health, and productivity. Our meetings provide an excellent opportunity for face-to-face networking with local integrated absence management peers.

Join Our Mailing List

If you’d like to receive email invitations for upcoming chapter meetings, please contact us at and request to be added to the chapter mailing list.

If you don’t see an upcoming event listed, please check back. Meetings are added throughout the year.


Chapter meetings are held four times a year. Meetings typically run from 11:00 am-2:00 pm,  include two presenters, and provide an opportunity to network. We also occasionally hold informal “networking socials” for colleagues to interact in a more relaxed setting and meet chapter leaders.


All DMEC chapters meetings qualify for CPDM CEUs. Pick up a CPDM CEU reporting form at the close of each meeting.

The Washington (Greater Seattle) chapter also applies for pre-approved CEUs for the SHRM community (PHR & SPHR) and the vocational rehabilitation counselor community (CRC & CDMS). If approved, certificates are provided for these designations at the end of each session.
