AWB will hold one of the first seminars April 7 to help top management and quality managers complete restructuring of the AS9100 standard within their businesses and how the changes will impact their current Quality Management System.

Participants will learn why the standard was restructured and if they need to rewrite their current documentation to comply with the changes. The additions, deletions, and changes to the standard will also be reviewed.

The seminar will be held at the Northwest Credit Union Association building in SeaTac. Learn more and register here.

Public Charter Schools Are Working

Gov. Inslee should sign charter school bill, let students achieve their dreams

By Rep. Eric Pettigrew, D-Seattle

As a state, we cannot let go of our ability to lift hardworking people out of poverty. We must do everything within our power to ensure public education remains a powerful ladder to success for every child in Washington. We cannot allow the leaders and innovators of future generations to slip through the cracks simply because we were too stuck in our ways to create the change we know they needed.

ESSSB 6194, a bill to keep Washington's public charter schools open for the long-term and an option for all communities across the state, now sits on Inslee's desk awaiting his signature.

I urge the governor to sign the charter-school bill, which would keep these students on the path to achieving their dreams and build upon Washington's foundation of innovation and accountability in public education.

The recycling effort is currently featured in a commercial produced by the Association of Washington Business...
