The Seattle Economics Council (SEC) was founded in 1968 to provide a forum for business and economic issues and a network for local economists and those interested in business economics. The SEC is associated with the Pacific Northwest Regional Economic Conference (PNREC) and is the Seattle-area chapter of the National Association for Business Economics (NABE).

Art Harnisch Fund
The Seattle Economics Council maintains the Art Harnisch Fund in memory of one of our founding members. Art Harnisch was an economist with the Army Corps of Engineers who endowed the Art Harnisch fund in his will to provide students with a partial subsidy for their luncheons and to provide opportunities for students to grow and learn as part of the Seattle Economics Council. Occasionally, we ask our membership to donate to the fund to help replenish it in order to help the next generation of Seattle-based economists grow and prosper in our field of interest.
