Kirkland Business Roundtable

The City of Kirkland created its Business Roundtable meeting series to help move Kirkland forward as a community, business center, and tourist destination. The CEO-level roster invited individuals representing major Kirkland business clusters to gather on a quarterly basis to network and receive updates and information on new developments, economic opportunities, City initiatives and more.  

This group reviewed economic development challenges and opportunities, brainstormed different approaches to address these, and recommended new strategies.

This meeting series has been on hiatus as the City focuses its economic development efforts on the distribution of CARES Act funding to support its small business and nonprofit community recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Those interested in joining the Business Roundtable, sharing ideas, or addressing economic development issues may contact Government Affairs Manager Diana Hart
