Twisp Mayor elected to Association of Washington Cities Board of Directors

OLYMPIA – The Association of Washington Cities (AWC) announced that Twisp Mayor Soo Ing-Moody was recently elected to its Board of Directors. She represents AWC district 3, representing cities in Chelan, Douglas, Grant, and Okanogan Counties.

Delegates representing cities across the state elected Ing-Moody to the AWC board during the association’s Annual Business Meeting on June 22 in Vancouver, Wash. As AWC director for district 3, she represents one of AWC’s largest geographic districts, which includes 37 cities and towns in the quad county area. AWC district 3 is a largely rural eastern Washington district, with 32 of the cities in the district with populations less than 5000, and 13 of these less than 1000.

“I believe in AWC to represent the interests of all cities and towns throughout Washington regardless of size or location,” said Ing-Moody. “It’s an honor to have been elected to serve on the AWC Board and be part of the team to represent all cities and towns across our state. AWC focuses on the issues that matter most to cities and towns to ensure our municipalities thrive with equity of access to vital resources in support of sustainable public services affecting healthy economies, public safety, and social wellbeing.”

Ing-Moody was appointed to the board in 2016 to fill a vacancy. She started on the Twisp council in 2010 before becoming mayor in October the same year. She was most recently re-elected mayor in 2015. She is actively involved in regional transportation planning and economic development organizations, and serves as co-chair of the Okanogan Council of Governments.

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 serves 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. AWC also provides training, data and publications, and programs such as the AWC Employee Benefit Trust, AWC Risk Management Service Agency, AWC Workers’ Comp Retro, AWC Drug and Alcohol Consortium, and AWC GIS Consortium.
