Dick Conway 

Director and Co-Owner, The Puget Sound Economic Forecaster 

The Seattle Economics Council is pleased to welcome Dick Conway, Director and Co-Owner of the The Puget Sound Economic Forecaster. Dick Conway is principal of Dick Conway & Associates, a research and consulting firm specializing in regional economic forecasting and analysis.  He is also co-publisher of The Puget Sound Economic Forecaster (, a forecast and commentary on the Puget Sound regional economy.  After a twenty-five year run, Dick and Doug Pedersen will publish their last newsletter in June.


Dick has served on the Washington Governor's Council of Economic Advisors for thirty-two years and was a member of the Washington State Tax Structure Study Committee (the "Gates Committee").  He continues to work on tax reform, which is turning out to be a lifelong project.


In 1976, as a Research Associate in the University of Washington School of Business, Dick built a regional econometric model and made his first forecast.  Forty years later, he is still striving for perfection.
