EASC serves as the led ADO organization. The organization provides an opportunity for Snohomish County to grow. A goal is to be open and more transparent in the community.
Snohomish County has a robust industry sector and diversity of the industry is key to our success. Snohomish County is known for Aerospace and Maritime. Top 10 employers include The Boeing Company, Providence Regional Medical Center, and Snohomish County Government.
