In 2016, WSAS responded to members’ strong interest to become more active in fulfilling its mission of “Science in the Service of Washington State” by establishing three Topical Working Groups (TWGs) aligned with key scientific and technological policy interests of both the state and our members. TWGs are designed to engage members in key policy issues facing the state, organize and conduct projects addressing these issues, and help coordinate efforts to connect with other state and local organizations.

The initial TWGs are:

  • Environmental Quality, Sustainability and Climate Change
  • Jobs, Infrastructure and Economic Environment
  • Quality of Life, Health, Education and Workforce Preparedness
