The Association of Washington Business (the powerful statewide chamber of commerce) is hosting their annual policy summit at Suncadia, a secluded mountain resort outside of Cle Elum. Their plan? Set the corporate agenda for Olympia.
Why weren’t we invited to the party? While wealthy CEO’s are attending golf tournaments and wine tastings, middle class and low income families are struggling to make ends meet.
Washington residents from all over the state will join forces on Tuesday, September 20th and Wednesday, September 21st to show members of the AWB what the people have to say. Corporate interests have been ruling Olympia and our country long enough. Showdown at Suncadia will allow us to confront corporate greed head-on.
In addition to a golf tournament and wine tasting, the agenda also features workshops entitled “Where Will the Money Come From?” (led by Phyllis Campbell, the Northwest Regional Director of Chase Bank) and “What are Americans Thinking?” (just our two personal favorites), as well as a keynote speech by Governor Gregoire.
You want to know what Americans are thinking? We’ll tell you loud and clear at Showdown at Suncadia!
