OLYMPIA – The Association of Washington Cities (AWC) announced that Twisp Mayor Soo Ing-Moody was recently elected secretary of its Board of Directors. The secretary serves on the association’s Board of Directors executive committee, and is in line to become vice president, and then president.

“I believe in bridging gaps, finding common ground, and building stronger relationships to productively work together,” said Ing-Moody. “As secretary, I pledge to do my best to support our executive committee to overcome any challenges that may arise, and to take full advantage of opportunities that might take the association from ‘good’ to ‘great’!”

“AWC serves the cities and towns of Washington, regardless of size or location,” added Ing-Moody. “I look forward to continuing my service and working to help ensure all 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, and reelected in 2017. She joined the Twisp council in 2010 and became mayor in October the same year. She was most recently reelected mayor in 2015. She also serves as 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.
