The Washington Workforce Association (WWA) is a nonprofit non-partisan membership organization of the twelve Workforce Development Councils (WDC) of Washington State. The twelve WDCs are business led boards that coordinate and leverage workforce investments and strategies with stakeholders from education, economic development, labor and community based organizations to advance the economic health of their respective communities through a skilled and competitive workforce.

WDCs are certified by the Governor of Washington State with agreement from local elected officials under the requirements of the federal Workforce Investment Act of 1998, which calls for a comprehensive system to provide America with a highly skilled workforce that competes in the global economy.

WWA provides information, training, tools, and recommendations to policy makers, workforce development professionals, Workforce Development Council members, and the community at large to help make informed decisions about how to invest in workforce strategies. WWA works in partnership with other statewide, regional and national organizations advocating for a coordinated, funded system focused on the needs of job seekers and businesses.
