Spokane mayor elected to Association of Washington Cities board executive committee

Olympia – The Association of Washington Cities (AWC) announced that Spokane mayor David Condon was recently elected large city representative of the Board of Directors. The large city representative serves on the board’s executive committee.

“Shared experiences and opportunities are among the great benefits of working and engaging with colleagues statewide,” Condon said.

“Spokane has learned a great deal as it is becoming safer, stronger and smarter, and there is much that we can accomplish by working with other Washington cities. I look forward to working with the other board and executive committee members to further AWC’s Strong Cities, Great State campaign.”

Condon has served twice on the AWC Board of Directors. He served from 2012 to 2014 and then resumed service earlier this year. The City of Spokane, as Washington’s second largest city, holds a single-city district position on the AWC board.

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’s mission is to serve 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.
