Delegation to Fly to Olympia and Advocate on Behalf of the Spokane Region

Greater Spokane Inc. will lead a delegation of community leaders for the annual Olympia fly-in January 17-19 to advocate on behalf of the Spokane region. The Olympia Fly-in is in partnership with Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Spokane Partnership, and West Plains Chamber of Commerce.

The Fly-in event, presented by MultiCare, brings together more than 60 business, education, and community leaders, who will meet with lawmakers and advocate on behalf of the greater Spokane region with a unified agenda.

This year’s fly-in features a two-night stay at the new Courtyard by Marriott, the legendary Grand Reception, a Kickoff Luncheon, a breakfast presentation, and two days of advocacy.

Topics covered will include business climate and taxation, health care, education, and regional capital and transportation projects, among others. The agenda highlights policy priorities for the Spokane region encompassing workforce, housing, and healthcare issues facing our community, among others.

Projects and issues on our agenda are all aimed at improving the business climate and overall community. All projects and issues are vetted by GSI’s Public Policy Council and the final agenda is approved by GSI’s Board of Trustees. The full State Agenda can be found here.

This year’s event is presented by MultiCare. The Executive Sponsor is Providence, and Event Sponsors are Alaska Airlines, Desimone Consulting Group, and University of Washington.
