Since 1911, the Port of Seattle has grown from a fledgling harbor to a multi-faceted organization that runs a world-class seaport and international airport, supporting tourism and commercial fishing industries, partnering in building road and rail infrastructure, and leading in environmental and sustainability efforts. Yet, our values remain rooted in serving the citizens of King County by creating economic opportunity for all, stewarding our environment responsibly, partnering with surrounding communities, conducting ourselves transparently and holding ourselves accountable.
All authority of the Port of Seattle is vested with the Commission in its actions as a public body under RCW 53. Five Commissioners, elected at large by the voters of King County, serve four-year terms to govern the Port, lead all inter-governmental functions, and oversee the Executive Director. The Commission vests authority with the Executive Director and delineates Commission and ED responsibilities through the Delegation of Responsibility and Authority.
- Port Commission meetings are normally held at 12 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at either Pier 69 or Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, with the exception of August, November, and December, when regular meetings are held the 2nd and 3rd Tuesdays of those months. Regular meetings may begin at 10:30 a.m. if Executive Sessions are held prior to the 12noon session. Because meeting times and locations can change, please visit the Commission Meetings page for the most up-to-date information.
