WEDA is ultimately about jobs, jobs jobs, but jobs don't just happen.   In fact, retaining existing jobs and recruiting new jobs in Washington State requires the work of many. Creating an environment that encourages high quality job creation in Washington State requires a strong presence in state legislative and regulatory arenas. It requires an association that has economic development as its core mission -- its very reason for existence. WEDA is that organization.
