OLYMPIA – The Association of Washington Cities (AWC) announced that Ridgefield Councilmember Ron Onslow was recently reelected to its Board of Directors. He has served on the board since 2018.

“I am honored to continue my service on the AWC Board of Directors,” said Onslow, “I believe that common sense, business sense, collaboration, and communication are the keys to good government. I’m bringing my decades of community leadership to this board to get things done and make headway working with the state and federal government.”

Onslow was reelected to the AWC Board during the association’s Business Meeting on June 27 in Spokane. He represents AWC Board District 5, which includes 26 cities and towns in Clark, Cowlitz, Klickitat, Lewis and Skamania Counties.

Onslow has served on the Ridgefield City Council for 12 years.

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.
