Maren Calvert is a member of the Board of Directors of The Association of Washington Businesses (AWB). As a member of the AWB, Horenstein Law Group gathers up-to-date information and statistics to help our business and real estate customers. AWB and HLG are also very active in public policy, so we have up-to-the-minute information to provide our Government Relations, Collaborative Governance, and Land Use clients.
We want all our clients to know that AWB has two websites that are available to the public to help you Rebound and Recover from the pandemic and to elevate your strategic planning through vital statistical information.
The Rebound and Recovery website has a business toolkit to help you reopen your business and operate within the Washington state requirements for signage, masks, floor stickers, etc. You can also sign up to connect with local manufacturers who provide personal protective equipment (PPE).
The AWB Institute provides a website with Washington data broken out by county and by metropolitan service areas that will help you elevate your strategic planning. For example, you can review unemployment rates, median household income, quarterly retail sales, and residential building permits for each county or city and compare them on a graph. You can gather infrastructure and connectivity data, explaining broadband access rates, airports, and commute time.
The site also provides data regarding job creation, new business formation, and education levels of the available workforce. Each of these data points can be plotted on a graph, comparing various cities or counties, to help you evaluate your next business move.
Both of these AWB websites are free to the public. Let us know how HLG can help you elevate your business.
