2013 AWC RMSA Board of Directors recruitment
AWC RMSA Board of Directors members play a critical leadership role in the success of AWC’s Risk Management Service Agency. As a RMSA Board of Directors member, you will provide guidance regarding the RMSA Program and its policies. The Board receives RMSA’s Operating Committee recommendations for consideration and/or approval.
Pursuant to the AWC-Risk Management Service Agency (AWC RMSA) Bylaws, the AWC RMSA is governed by a seven (7) member Board of Directors, which is comprised of AWC RMSA member’s elected officials who serve the membership at large. All Board members are elected by a majority vote of the Mayors or Head Officials of the RMSA member entities. Each Board member serves a three (3) year term, running from January through December.
The Board of Directors generally meets at the AWC offices in Olympia, with one meeting at the AWC Annual Conference in conjunction with the AWC RMSA Annual Meeting. The AWC RMSA Program pays all expenses associated with travel to and from the meetings, including transportation, meals and lodging. However, the time spent away from city hall to attend the meetings is not reimbursable.
RMSA is currently seeking nominations for its four open Board of Directors positions. One position will be vacant Dec 31. Incumbents are:
Councilmember Jeanne Pettersen, North Bend
Councilmember Jim Bailey, Wenatchee
Mayor Ken Smith, Vader
