What is it?

The Retro Advisory Committee is the first line of governance for the program, making decisions on a number of issues and forwarding recommendations to the AWC Retro Board, the legal governing authority of the program.

Any employee from a city or town that is a member of the Retro Pool can serve on the open Retro Advisory Committee position. Refer to the Program Policies for the structure and regulations of the committee.

The Committee generally meets three times per year in the SeaTac area, and your travel expenses are reimbursable.
