Kennewick mayor pro tem elected vice president of Association of Washington Cities

OLYMPIA – The Association of Washington Cities (AWC) announced that Kennewick mayor pro tem Don Britain was recently elected vice president of AWC. The vice president serves on the association’s executive committee and is in line to become president.

“I look forward to using my experience to serve our AWC members,” said Britain. “We need to continue to support smart legislation that will enhance economic development and create jobs in order to increase city revenues and provide needed services to our citizens.”

Britain has served on the AWC board since 2014. He was elected to the Kennewick city council in 2009 and reelected in 2013.

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.
