About Association of Washington Business

Formed in 1904,  the Association of Washington Business is Washington’s oldest and largest statewide business association,  and includes nearly 7,000 members representing 700,000 employees.  AWB serves as both the state’s chamber of commerce and the manufacturing and technology association.  AWB also has a longstanding record of working on behalf of companies in many other industries such as retail,  wholesale,  communications,  services,  agriculture,  transportation,  hospitality and construction.  While its membership includes major employers like Boeing and Microsoft,  more than 90 percent of AWB members employ fewer than 100 people.  More than half of AWB’s members employ fewer than 10.  For more about AWB,  visit
