Washington State Small Business Liaison

The Washington State Small Business Liaison Team (SBLT) has been working on converting our Live Small Business Requirements and Resources (SBRR) Workshops into a Webinar based program. In the process, we realized that the information business owners need right now is about getting ready to operate safely; doing business while caring for the health and safety of their employees and customers. In these sessions business owners will get to interact with liaisons from Employment Security Department (ESD), Department of Health (DOH), Department of Revenue (DOR), Department of Labor & Industry (L&I), Department of Enterprise Services (DES) and the Governor’s Office for Regulatory Innovation and Assistance (ORIA). See the SBRR flyer for registration details and the Small Business Liaison Directory with your small business community.
