Who Are We?
The membership includes representatives from all business sectors throughout Chelan-Douglas County as well as the entire North Central Washington region. All of our members represent companies that employ Latinos and/or seek to build a relationship with the Latino community. furthermore, our board of directors reflects the interest and aspirations of all of these categories.
Our Charter includes ongoing support for a number of vital functions that benefit the business section and residents within our service area.
The Port of Chelan County is the county’s principal economic development agency and operates as an independent government entity under the provisions of Title 53 of the Revised Code of Washington (RCW).
The Port of Douglas County takes pride in helping create jobs, overseeing public resources and serving as a leader in the community. We accomplish this task in a multitude of ways, including the development of our own business park at Pangborn Memorial Airport, installation of infrastructure for industrial growth, issuing bonds to further economic development projects, and assisting companies with retention or expansion needs. In a nutshell, we seek out and embrace strategic partnerships that will stimulate and enhance the community’s economy and quality of life.
Port districts in Washington state are unique entities. State law allows them to own, manage and develop industrial, transportation and tourism facilities. In the process, ports serve as conduits between the public and the private sectors.
