AdvocacyOur advocacy work is focused on three primary priorities: creating a competitive business environment to support business retention, expansion and recruitment with an emphasis on those issues which impact our high tech and growth sectors (e.g. aerospace, health care, clean tech); increasing training and educational opportunities to ensure our region grows a workforce for the 21st century economy, and; prioritizing and facilitating transportation and infrastructure initiatives to ensure the safe and efficient movement of people and goods. By helping the region speak with one voice we can exert greater influence on public policy, and ultimately, make Snohomish County a better place to live and do business.
Community DevelopmentThe key to retaining and enhancing our amazing quality of life is to establish a sustainable economy. Economic Alliance Snohomish County is committed to developing that economy right here. An economy so strong and resilient that it rides through inevitable downturns by keeping people employed and providing services to those who need them. At EASC, we are embracing the potential of the 21st century by laying the foundation for our local business community to thrive.
Industry and Resource DevelopmentIndustry and Resource Development delivers three primary services; business retention, expansion and attraction. Business Retention and Expansion is directed towards businesses currently operating in Snohomish County. We assist firms who want to expand their operations or are facing difficulties in their attempts to do so. Business Attraction is directed towards firms located outside the State of Washington. In this role, we are marketing the Snohomish County business climate while responding to firms who are considering an expansion or relocation project.
Resource Development addresses the building blocks of a strong regional economy, sometimes referred as infrastructure. This could include advocacy for improvements to our road and rail systems, enhanced educational curriculum or modifications to tax policy.
Small Business & Entrepreneurial Programs
We are guided by the premise that the key to a sustainable economy is to support the growth and success of our local business community. One of those areas of support is resources.
