On behalf of your Executive Committee, I would like to invite you to attend WPPA’s Annual Meeting held at the Hotel Murano in Tacoma from November 16th to the 18th.
There are a lot of exciting things going on and through your attendance you will both learn about all these topics as well have the opportunity to provide valued input. Of note, we have commissioned a study of how many jobs we collectively create, and the results will be unveiled at this event. We are also engaged in our marine cargo and rail forecast – which will also be rolled out.
State leaders will address with us their perspectives on issues, and we will talk about the coming legislative session, as well as key current challenges. The Port Reports and popular Roundtables are all back, as well.
Please plan to attend, engage, learn and connect; this Association is the one place where ports can truly all work together to make our state a better place.
Thank you for your continued engagement and leadership in your communities.
Troy McClelland, Commissioner
Port of Everett
