Mayors Exchange

February 21 | Olympia
AWC office, Rainier Room
1076 Franklin St. SE
Olympia, WA 98501

Mayors have a unique role at city hall, and who understands your challenges better than other mayors?

Mayors are invited to gather in Olympia for an engaging daylong session to network with fellow mayors, share news from home, and glean best practices. This is your opportunity to talk about your city budget, hear from other mayors, and connect on important city issues.

  • Gather and rally around issues that matter to cities;
  • Share local legislative agendas and discuss how they intersect with AWC's priorities; and
  • Connect and share information with peers about what’s happening at home.

Governor Inslee will join us at the beginning of the day to share what his priorities are for the 2018 legislative session and what it means for your communities.



This event is for mayors, city managers and administrators.
