There's no better way to connect with Congress than attend AWB's 2019 Federal Affairs Summit on Aug. 19 and 20 at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, operated by Battelle, in the Tri-Cities. 

Our agenda this year includes an opening reception at the Ste. Michelle Wine Estates WSU Wine Science Center, panels on the future of innovation and energy, a panel on bipartisanship, and remarks from these Washington members of Congress:

  • U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-WA
  • U.S. Rep. Dan Newhouse, R-WA
  • U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer, D-WA
  • U.S. Rep. Kim Schrier, D-WA
  • U.S. Rep. Suzan DelBene, D-WA

AWB has increased its federal focus in recent years, since federal policies have an outsized impact here in Washington, where international trade and military bases are cornerstones of the economy. Taxes, tariffs and infrastructure are critical to employers small and large. That's why it's critical that Washington employers engage with our federal delegation and government agencies on policy that may impact your business and industry. You'll come away informed.

Your voice is essential in informing the members of Washington’s congressional delegation about the policies and initiatives that will allow our state to thrive, and AWB is providing members the opportunity to do just that at the Federal Affairs Summit.

Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to participate in discussions that contribute to a business environment conducive to creating a resilient and growing, statewide economy.
