2008 Washington Manufacturing Appreciation
Award Ceremony and Sixth Annual Symposium

Awards Ceremony, June 2: Join the Manufacturing Industrial Council, U.S. Department of Commerce and as many elected officials as we can cajole into joining us at Salty's for a seafood buffet and no host bar. We'll recognize Western Washington companies for their successful entry into new export markets. RSVP at

Symposium, June 3: Join the Center for Advanced Manufacturing Puget Sound (CAMPS) and other sponsoring organizations at a symposium on industrial topics of the day. At Emerald Downs in Auburn we'll be enjoying a luncheon that honors Genie Industries and gets the latest Northwest Industrial Index update by our own Dave Gering. Additional sessions will include a Supply Chain Boot Camp and information about accessing Alberta Canada's $175 Billion market entitled "The Boom Next Door." RSVP at

The Food Banks Need Bags
Our community is gathering reusable canvas tote bags to donate to Northwest Harvest to assist in their goal to eliminate the waste created by 40,000 plastic bags they currently use each month in the neighborhood food banks. If you have canvas bags you'd like to donate, or know of a resource, please contact Emily Cates of Consolidated Press for pick up (206.941.1188 cell) or you can drop off at the collection box in their entrance at 600 S. Spokane St, 98134. No quantity is too small! For large amounts NWH will send their truck - coordinate with Emily.

Duwamish Visioning Survey
Please take our short survey about the Duwamish Valley industrial area. The survey results will help us guide our Future Map design, and assist with the larger, coordinated planning efforts that need to happen in the Duwamish areas. Click on Duwamish Visioning Survey button on the right (the cute picture of the Heron) The survey will only take a few minutes, and you are welcome to forward this link to your staff, or others you know who work or own businesses in the Duwamish area.

We appreciate your time, and hope to see you on June 4th at our Duwamish Valley Future event being held at REI Flagship Store, 222 Yale North from 6-8:30pm.
