AWB Staff

Formed in 1904, the Association of Washington Business is Washington’s oldest and largest statewide business association, and includes nearly 7,000 members representing 700,000 employees. AWB is based in Olympia.

AWB serves as both the state’s chamber of commerce and the manufacturing and technology association. While its membership includes major employers like Boeing and Microsoft, nearly 92 percent of AWB members employ fewer than 100 people. More than half of AWB’s members employ fewer than 10.
