Policy Development

Strategic partnerships with lawmakers and corporate leaders mean members have a hand in shaping economic policy instead of waiting for it to be handed down.

We advocate on behalf of issues that improve the Cowlitz County economy and make the county more competitive. We take this crucial part of our mission seriously and stay abreast of the latest concerns and issues.

  • We monitor and review economic development trends, development constraints and employment projections for their potential economic impacts.
  • We advocate and assist in developing legislation and or programs that foster sustainable economic growth.
