Associate Membership

Associate members are agencies, organizations and businesses who are interested in city issues and want to build a connection that will advance that relationship. Whether you’re a company looking to strengthen your business relationships within the city family or an agency wanting to tap into the outstanding member pooling programs available through AWC, we help you create connections with the right people and services. By participating in AWC, you’re joining an organization that includes:

  • 2,000+ Washington mayors and councilmembers
  • 1,100 city manager/administrators, city planners, finance directors, public works directors, attorneys, human resources staff, and park directors
  • 500+ government and community partners

Corporate Partners Program

AWC’s Corporate Partners Program connects businesses and other organizations with city elected officials and key staff from Washington’s 281 cities. As a corporate partner, you can make the contacts and create the visibility that strengthens your business relationships within the city family.

Corporate partners join for different reasons. You can exhibit at a discounted price at AWC’s annual conference, tap into our research and information, work with us on projects, network at AWC training events, or sponsor a prominent event. Your corporate partnership gives you a sharpened competitive edge and a place in the vital municipal network of civic leaders.

Non-profit or non-city public agency program

These categories of Associate membership are designed for non-city, non-tribal, government agencies seeking access to AWC’s valuable information, trainings, and pooling programs. When registering for Associate Membership, determine whether you would like a single individual, or all staff, in your agency to have access to AWC publications, reports, and survey results. Also consider whether discounted training for your entire staff and discounted magazine advertising are important to you. Select either Individual or Group membership accordingly. As an Associate Member, you also are eligible to apply for AWC’s outstanding pooling programs, including: Employee Benefit Trust, Risk Management Service Agency, Workers’ Comp Retro program, and Drug & Alcohol Consortium.
