A little more about our guest speaker:
Kitsap Business Survey
Employers face many challenges now -- inflation, supply chains, taxes and regulations. We'd love to hear from you. Please take a moment to fill out this survey of state employers. The survey comes from the Association of Washington Business.
Our chamber is a member of AWB's Grassroots Alliance, a coalition of more than 100 chambers of commerce working together on common economic development goals.
The survey is anonymous. Results will help tell lawmakers, and the public at large, about the challenges that employers face now.
Thank you for your time, and please don't hesitate to reach out with questions.
