This is an excellent opportunity for community members to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of our region.

The POCAC provides valuable insights, recommendations, and feedback to the Port Commission, directly impacting the alignment of initiatives with the community’s aspirations.

“We believe that diversity is a strength, and we are dedicated to creating an inclusive environment where everyone’s voice is heard,” said Camille St. Onge, Director of Strategic Initiatives and Commission Affairs. “We’re in the process of evolving the Citizens Advisory Committee platform and are looking for community members to contribute to the future of the Port of Olympia. We want to hear the unique perspectives of our community.”
