In lieu of WSRS’s traditional “Day of Advocacy in Olympia,” please join us on February 16 at 10am for a Zoom meeting with Nick Streuli, Executive Director of External Affairs for Governor Jay Inslee. Nick Streuli has been the Inslee Administration’s point man on business re-opening, COVID testing, and COVID vaccine efforts. Nick can give us a first hand account of how the governor’s office pivoted quickly a year ago and the state’s current effort to deploy vaccines and at what time they will be readily available.
Nick Streuli is a member of Governor Jay Inslee’s Executive Team and was appointed executive director of the external affairs in May 2020. He has more than 10 years of experience in public policy, government relations, and executive management.
Nick joined the Inslee administration after spending four years as legislative director for the Employment Security Department (ESD). He also worked as the ESD federal government and tribal affairs liaison prior to serving as the legislative director.
Nick worked closely with the legislature and stakeholders on groundbreaking legislation such as the Paid Family and Medical Leave Act in 2017 and the Long-Term Care Trust Act in 2019.
Nick holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and economics and a master’s degrees in business administration from the Washington State University. He and his wife, Christina, have one son and live in Tumwater.
This annual event brings members of WSRS from around the state to Olympia to advocate for policy that assures healthcare access and safety for members of the public. It’s an exciting introduction to how ordinary healthcare providers can promote good sense public policy by making themselves available to explain issues, challenges and innovations to lawmakers and members of their staff. Don’t miss it!
