Attire and Weather
Attire for AUTM meetings is business casual. Average daytime high temperature in Seattle in September is 70°F (22°C); the average low temperature is 53°F (12°C). Because meeting room temperatures sometimes fluctuate (read: brrrr!), AUTM recommends bringing a light sweater or jacket.
