About Thurston Economic Development Council
Supporting a Strong Economy in Thurston County since 1982.
To create a dynamic and sustainable economy that supports the values of the people who live and work in Thurston County.
At the foundation of the work we do are three main principles: recruit, retain, and expand.
Retain: We work to maintain the health of local businesses by offering technical assistance, and providing advocacy on their behalf.
Expand: We present market opportunities to Thurston County employers, providing support for them to expand their operations.
Recruit: We actively attract investment and employment opportunities into our region through outreach, promotion and trade missions.
