In 2016, we introduced a new level of membership to recognize those locally owned businesses whose values and actions most closely align with those of Seattle Good Business Network, and that wish to financially support our work on an ongoing basis. They recognize that their businesses can be a tremendous force for positive change, and are leaders in environmental stewardship, community support, and employee well-being, even when its hard. They are true champions for our vision of a vibrant, inclusive, sustainable economy and we are proud to be affiliated with them!
