Hear what WEA members are
saying about the organization:


“Westside Economic Alliance is an important voice for issues that impact businesses that are located on the west side of the Portland-metro region. WEA is actively engaged in policy that impacts businesses - land use, transportation and infrastructure – I have found WEA to be a valuable source for learning about topical issues, communicating with regional elected officials, and a forum for coming together on advocacy efforts.”

- Carly Riter, NW Region Government Affairs Manager, Intel



“We’re headquartered in Portland and have had a presence in Washington County for 40 years; so in addition to the usual mission statement, networking, and etc., the WEA really keeps us involved in local and regional issues and events that impact not only the future of our business in this region, but all aspects of our employees’ lives.”

- Mike Morey, Assistant Vice President, The Standard--StanCorp Mortgage Investors, LLC


“Angelo Planning Group (APG) has been a member of the WEA since 1999. As a small company we appreciate the access to information WEA offers through the monthly forums and various committees. We also appreciate the chance to meet with larger companies and public agencies that are WEA members to understand common issues and where there are opportunities to collaborate and do business. WEA offers our firm the ability to participate and have a voice in issues that are important to us at both the local and statewide level.”

- Frank Angelo, Principal, Angelo Planning Group
