WASHINGTON PUBLIC PORTS ASSOCIATION
If you live in Washington, chances are that most of what you eat, wear and use came through a Washington port. There are 75 port districts located in Washington State, and because of the work they do, Washington's products share a single market: the world.
Ports do much more than promote trade at shipping terminals: they operate marinas, docks, airports, railroads, industrial sites, and recreational facilities. Ports bring economic development - investment and jobs - to their communities.
The Washington Public Ports Association was formed by the Legislature in 1961. WPPA promotes the interests of the port community through effective government relations, ongoing education, and strong advocacy programs.
