Mayor Boudreau Elected to AWC Board of Directors
The Association of Washington Cities (AWC) announced that Mount Vernon Mayor Jill Boudreau was recently elected to its Board of Directors.
“Those of us who serve know the power of local government to make people’s lives better,” said Boudreau. “AWC is a respected voice in Olympia and Washington, D.C. and I look forward to serving as a member of the Board.”
Boudreau was elected to the AWC Board during the association’s Business Meeting on June 25. She serves District 14, which includes 19 cities and towns in Island, San Juan, Skagit, and Whatcom counties.
The AWC Board of Directors is the association’s governing body. The Board is comprised of 25 directors, 23 of whom are mayors or city councilmembers from Washington cities or towns, and two non-elected city officials who also serve as the president and past president of the Washington City/County Management Association.
AWC serves its members through advocacy, education, and services. Founded in 1933, AWC is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan corporation that represents Washington's cities and towns before the state legislature, the state executive branch, and with regulatory agencies. Membership is voluntary. However, AWC consistently maintains 100 percent participation from Washington’s 281 cities and towns. AWC also provides training, data and publications, and programs such as the AWC Employee Benefit Trust, AWC Risk Management Service Agency, AWC Workers’ Comp Retro, AWC Drug and Alcohol Consortium, and AWC GIS Consortium.
