At GWATA we rely on several key partners and sponsor that enable us to grow and connect within the North Central Washington area.  Without the generosity of these partners we would not achieve our mission. The ports have been major partners with GWATA since our inception and continue to support and nurture our growth in the region.  Without the contribution of their commissioners we could not make all the events that we provide happen.
