Fact-Based Research and Education
The WBA is actively engaged in fact-based business research, education, communication and advocacy with its members on issues deemed important to local business success and community prosperity. The WBA has built an extraordinary level of influence and credibility because it gathers credible data and information and shares it in a thoughtful, respectful and solution-focused manner.
Wherever appropriate, the WBA provides third party objective research and analysis using credible data in order to facilitate reasonable solutions to issues facing local business. We also engage in education and advocacy for businesses on policy matters that are deemed to be detrimental to business success. We build coalitions and develop strategies to assist businesses in engagement on important policy issues in order to change the trajectory of bad policy before it is implemented.
