Lobby Lunch

Olympia's Power Lunch

2016 Lobby Lunch Series

Each legislative session, AWB invites lawmakers, state elected officials and key policy staff to share their views over lunch with members at our office in Olympia.

Starting at noon every Thursday during session, these luncheons provide timely, informative updates from key players in the legislative process.

Each Lobby Lunch is $20 and is open to current AWB members. To register for an upcoming Lobby Lunch, contact Connie Carlson at 360.943.1600. Registrations are due by 5 p.m. of the Monday before each Thursday event.

If you can't attend a Lobby Lunch, you can still hear what these decision makers have to say. Be sure to visit Olympia Business Watch to read our recap of the presentations, and to watch video of the Lobby Lunch speakers.

You can also follow each Lobby Lunch in real-time at the AWB Twitter account (@AWBOlympia) and under the hash tag #LobbyLunch.
