Washington Athletic Club, Official Host of Seafair Board of Directors Meetings

The Washington Athletic Club has been on the forefront of Seattle since 1930. From modest beginnings, it has evolved into the best athletic club in the nation. The WAC's mission, helping our members live better lives, hasn’t changed. That pioneering spirit is guided by a strong vision: To enrich the quality of life of its members and to be the premier athletic club in America. But above all else, the WAC values excellence, service, integrity, leadership and sensitivity.

Because of this uncompromising touchstone, the WAC is a repeat winner of the Five-Star Platinum Award. The WAC's beautiful historical landmark–designated building reflects the great traditions of the WAC, and the new facilities and services inside represent the best of the present and the basis for a most successful future.
