Virtual Federal Affairs Summit

Tuesday, August 11
8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Federal Affairs Summit


On Tuesday August 11th we connected with Washington’s congressional delegation at AWB’s Federal Affairs Summit.

Attendees asked questions directly to the congressional delegation and got the most up to date information around international trade, immigration, taxes, infrastructure and other federal issues that impact their businesses. This was a special opportunity to  engage our elected officials on positive solutions to help Washington thrive.

For questions, please contact AWB Events at Events@AWB.org or 360.943.1600.
