Education and workforce development are key priorities for the Chamber because our region’s economy depends on people having the knowledge and skills they need to work in its current and future job markets. We advocate at the local, state and federal levels to advance policies that align education and training with employer needs, and support common-sense immigration reforms that ensure Seattle metropolitan employers can hire talent to fill short-term needs. We also collaborate with our affiliate organizations, including the Alliance for Education
on issues pertaining to Seattle Public Schools and the Civic Alliance for a Sound Economy (CASE)
on identifying strong candidates for the Seattle School Board.
