Boards

The regional Economic Development Board is the federally designated economic development district for the central Puget Sound region covering King, Kitsap, Pierce and Snohomish counties. Its members include representatives from private business, local governments, tribes and trade organizations. The Economic Development Board meets quarterly, beginning in March, on the first Wednesday of the month from 1-3 p.m.

Executive Board members are appointed by their General Assembly constituents to represent the member governments. The board is chaired by PSRC’s president, meets monthly and carries out delegated powers and responsibilities between meetings of the General Assembly.

The Puget Sound Regional Council General Assembly includes all mayors, county executives, commissioners, and councilmembers of PSRC member jurisdictions. Each elected representative is a voting member of the General Assembly, which meets at least annually to vote on major decisions, establish the budget, and elect new officers.
