From the Thurston County Chamber of Commerce:
“On Wednesday, January 14, representatives from Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater, Yelm, and Thurston County will collectively present a State of the Community address at the Thurston County Chamber Forum.
Every year, leaders from the community share their perspectives on current issues and future prospects. Leaders will illustrate the important steps and investments made this past year to grow our local economy and promote new employment.
Prior to the State of the Community is an Elected Officials Reception, from 11:00 a.m. until noon. This is an opportunity to engage business and community leaders in a one-on-one networking setting. The reception will also provide Chamber members and elected officials an opportunity to get to know each other better. The reception is open to all Forum attendees.”
Olympia Mayor Stephen Buxbaum, Lacey Mayor Andy Ryder, Tumwater Mayor Pete Kmet, Yelm Mayor Ron Harding and Thurston County Commissioner Cathy Wolfe have committed to attend representing their receptive jurisdictions.
