Milestone: Sequim city councilor Janisse awarded advanced leadership certificate

Sequim city councilor Brandon Janisse recently received an Advanced Certificate of Municipal Leadership from the Association of Washington Cities (AWC).

The association’s leadership program recognizes city and town elected officials for accomplishing training in four core areas: roles, responsibilities and legal requirements; public sector resource management; community planning and development, and effective local leadership.

Those who earn the advanced certificate continue to strive for excellence by attending conferences and trainings, serving their community, and further developing leadership skills, city officials said.

To earn the Advanced Certificate of Municipal Leadership, Janisse completed more than 60 hours of training credits and demonstrated community service.

“Cities and towns around the state are continually transforming in light of changing laws and the need to meet new challenges and opportunities,” AWC Chief Executive Officer Peter B. King said in a press release.

“Our Advanced Certificate of Municipal Leadership recognizes mayors and council members who continue to enhance the tools they need today to understand the legal landscape, plan for the future, manage their resources, and foster strong relationships.

“The elected officials who earn this certificate demonstrate a commitment to continuous learning and a desire to bring new ideas back to their community.”

Janisse has served on the Sequim City Council since January 2018. He now serves on the City’s Finance Committee and is the Chair of the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee.

He previously served as the liaison to the City’s Planning Commission and as an alternate to the Clallam Transit System Board.

Janisse earned his Certificate of Municipal Leadership from AWC in 2018.

AWC is a private, nonprofit, non-partisan corporation that represents Washington state’s 281 cities and towns before the state legislature, the state executive branch and with regulatory agencies.
