AWB is the catalytic leader and unifying voice for economic prosperity throughout Washington state. We are the state's Chamber of Commerce, and the Technology and Manufacturing Association. We work to ensure that Washington will excel as a globally competitive state built on a solid foundation of innovation, a world class workforce, and a quality of place second to none.
Formed in 1904, the Association of Washington Business is Washington’s oldest and largest statewide business association, and includes nearly 8,000 members representing 700,000 employees. AWB serves as both the state’s chamber of commerce and the manufacturing and technology association. While its membership includes major employers like Boeing, Microsoft and Weyerhaeuser, 90 percent of AWB members employ fewer than 100 people. More than half of AWB’s members employ fewer than 10.
