The Northwest Seaport Alliance is governed by the ports of Seattle and Tacoma as equal members — called managing members — with each port acting through its elected commissioners.
Managing Members hold regular public meetings on the first Tuesday of each month beginning at 11:30 a.m. However, if an executive session under RCW 42.30.110 and/or other authorized closed session is to be held (e.g., under laws and regulations found at 46 U.S.C. § 40306, 46 C.F.R. § 538.608, 46 C.F.R. § 535.701(I)(1) and as authorized by Port of Seattle/Port of Tacoma Alliance Agreement, FMC Agreement #201228), the regular meeting may convene at 9:30 a.m., immediately recess for the closed session, after which the public session will reconvene at 11:30 a.m. If the regular meeting Tuesday falls on a legal holiday or on the day after a Monday legal holiday, in either case, the regular meeting will be held on the Wednesday following the holiday. Special meetings may be held on different days.
If you require special accommodation to attend a public meeting, contact Juliet Campbell at 253-888-4791 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org at least 48 hours in advance.
