On July 11th SEA hosted a Summer Crab Event outside the Capitol Hill Club. It was a tremendous success as staffers from over 125 offices stopped by the event to enjoy delicious crab cakes courtesy of Lindy’s Seafood.

The Seasonal Employment Alliance is a not-for-profit association dedicated to improving the dependability, efficiency and long-term viability of a seasonal, non-immigrant guest worker program for non-agricultural employers.
