Intercity Study Mission

An annual, domestic study mission trip for regional senior-level leaders

  • About
    Each year the Chamber leads a group of government, business, and civic leaders to a prominent U.S. city to benchmark our region, learn best practices, and develop innovative approaches to solving our toughest challenges. These intercity trips offer delegates unique and concentrated opportunities to network with fellow participants.

    Past destinations have included Miami, New York City, Chicago, and Denver.

  • What past attendees have to say

    "These visits are always instructive and often inform decisions for our own community. The primary value comes from putting disparate people on a bus for a few days and getting them to talk to one another. Builds friendships and respect for differing views." - Bob Wallace, Los Angeles Study Mission 

    "I found the activities and agenda more than thought provoking. There were things that we learned that we can take action on in Seattle, or use to add depth to decision making. The opportunity to hear other points of view on big picture issues in a free exchange with non-judgmental local leaders promoted creativity and learning." - Thom Ditty
