Dex Media, hibu & LSA in Washington State
June 27, 2013 | Contributed by: Wesley Young
Sarah Wilson from Dex Media, Matt Krug from hibu and I are spending the entire day exhibiting at the Association of Washington Cities (AWC) conference in the Tri-Cities, more formally known as the neighboring cities of Kennewick, Pasco and Richland in Washington state.
More than 350 local officials have come to the Three Rivers Convention Center for workshops, roundtables, and AWC’s annual meeting. We have our booth in the exhibit hall to promote our industry’s consumer choice and sustainability initiatives.
The mayors, city councilmembers, and city staff here are highly engaged and have asked very thoughtful questions about our site and industry. Many have asked about how our industry can be a true partner to cities and communities and have taken information with the intent of promoting our opt-out site through city communication channels. We’ve also been pleased by the number of elected officials who have expressed that they still rely on printed directories yet also like the idea of choosing which one they get.
AWC is proud to represent 281 cities in the Evergreen State, and we are very happy to have had this opportunity to meet officials from so many of them.
