USA: Port of Tacoma Seeks Input on Strategic Planning

Pierce County citizens and Port of Tacoma business partners and customers are encouraged to take part in an online survey by Sept. 16 to provide input toward the Port’s strategic planning and brand identity.

The Port, a key catalyst for the local and state economy, is developing a strategic plan to guide the organization in its next chapter of economic growth and business success. The plan will guide actions over the next five years toward a longer-term vision.

Hand in hand with strategic planning, the Port also will examine its brand and identity to make sure it reflects the Port’s unique strategic advantages.

The Port will host open houses in the future to review the draft strategic plan before it goes to the commission for adoption in March.
