Sequim city councilor Rachel Anderson recently earned a Certificate of Municipal Leadership (CML) from the Association of Washington Cities (AWC), City of Sequim representatives said in mid-April.

The association’s CML 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.

Anderson, who was appointed to the council in February, completed more than 30 hours of training credits to earn this distinction. She serves on the Peninsula Regional Transportation Planning Organization and Homelessness Task Force.

“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.

“Our Certificate of Municipal Leadership program helps mayors and council members sharpen 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.”

Founded in 1933, AWC is a private, nonprofit, non-partisan corporation that represents Washington’s cities and towns before the state legislature, the state executive branch, and with regulatory agencies.

Founded in 1933, the association serves its members through advocacy, education, and services.

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.
