The Regional Leadership Conference (RLC) is the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce's premier event for our region's top business, government and community leaders. Since 1987, the Chamber has convened our top civic leaders for an annual retreat to develop innovative regional approaches to solving our toughest challenges and for the development of new economic development strategies that help us grow our local workforce, improve our quality of life and adapt to the needs of the future.

RLC 2016 will be the fourth year of our continuing effort to strengthen the Seattle region’s global competitiveness, and will focus significantly on efforts that have grown out of our work to-date, including Challenge Seattle and the Seattle Region Partnership The conference will bring together approximately 250 of our region's top business and government leaders around the themes of global competitiveness, middle wage jobs and the importance of economic opportunity for all of our region's residents. Attendees will not only gain updates on existing efforts, but also provide input to guide the future of this work and identify opportunities for engagement.
