Dave Mastin, VP of Governmental Affairs for Association of Washington Business, kicked off the Chamber’s first Leader Luncheon with exclusive insight into the state legislative process. A veteran legislator serving Washington’s 16th district from 1993 to 2005, Mastin made note of the incredible bipartisan wins made by a slate of mostly first-term legislators from the Tri-Cities. Our transformational members joined us for this deep dive into the coalition building and negotiations that must occur to have our interests represented.
Leader Luncheons are an exclusive feature for Regional Chamber members at the Leader level and above. For more information on joining the Chamber or upgrading your membership, contact Elisabeth Holt, Vice President, at 509.491.3237 or email@example.com.
Congratulations to the Port of Kennewick on their ribbon cutting ceremony for the improvements made to Clover Island's northern shoreline. The project restored a half-mile of shoreline and nearly an acre of shallow water habitat to benefit upper Columbia River spring Chinook salmon, upper and mid-Columbia River steelhead and bull trout; and provide benefits to other birds, wildlife, and aquatic species at Clover Island. In addition, the Clover Island Riverwalk was extended; scenic viewpoints, benches and educational panels added; and four upland parcels readied for development.
