Spring Meeting

The 2015 AWB Spring Meeting was held May 12 and 13 at the Davenport Hotel in downtown Spokane. This sold-out event included award presentations, remarks on leadership from keynote speaker Bob Lutz, the former vice chairman of General Motors, as well as talks from legislative leaders, exporters, and Jim Bruce of UPS. It also marked a milestone for the development of the next generation of Washington leadership with a graduation ceremony for the inaugural class of Leadership Washington.
