Spokane councilmember to serve on Association of Washington Cities Board of Directors

OLYMPIA – The Association of Washington Cities (AWC) announced that Spokane Councilmember Candace Mumm was recently appointed to serve on its Board of Directors. The city of Spokane, as Washington’s second largest city, holds one single-city district position on the AWC board.

“Now more than ever cities are working together for a stronger, safer Washington State. We have best practices to share, problems to solve and much we can learn from each other. I look forward to working on issues that affect so many of us in the Spokane area and across the state like housing, transportation options, and the rising cost of crime and climate-related emergencies that put such a stress on our resources,” said Mumm.

Mumm has served on the Spokane City Council since 2014 and is in her second term. She replaces Mayor David Condon, who previously held the AWC district position for Spokane.

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.

The Association of Washington Cities 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.
