The State is seeking a new mission (and has a new name) for its principal agency charged with business assistance and economic development.
You may help shape their agenda by taking a survey designed to gain a broad sense of the state’s opportunities and challenges to grow and improve jobs in Washington. Just click on this link.
The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete. The survey will close on August 28.
Feedback will help inform the proposals in a report for the Governor and Legislature by November 1. The report will include recommendations about the key functions that best fit the mission and vision of the Department of Commerce. This survey does not explicitly address how the agency will be structured because they seek first to clearly define the functions they should be doing and will then organize to be successful.
Thank you for your commitment to helping shape the new Washington State Department of Commerce. If you have additional comments or ideas beyond the survey questions, you can email them.
