Thank you for connecting, small cities!

A big tip of the hat to everyone who helped make this year’s Small City Connectors a great success! We had over 114 attendees representing 58 cities and towns this year at the five events hosted by Tenino, La Conner, Pateros, Chewelah, and Dayton. Additionally, attendees included a regional council of government, EDCs, county council, a state representative, WSU extension, and a tribal government.

Small City Connectors attendees shared dinner and learned about some new efforts from the Department of Commerce and Partners for Rural Washington, and connected through conversations on important small city issues and resources including AWC programs, news from the legislative session, and a host of other rural community topics.

New AWC Risk Management Service Agency (RMSA) staff attended the Connectors to meet with members and hear about news on the ground. RMSA Program Manager Adrienne Beatty added, “As a new addition to RMSA, attending the Small Cities Connectors was a great opportunity to meet and get to know some of our membership. RMSA member cities are primarily small to medium sized cities, so I enjoyed attending the Connectors to learn about current issues impacting a significant number of our members.”
