OLYMPIA – The Association of Washington Cities (AWC) announced that Spokane City Councilmember Candace Mumm was recently elected as Large City Representative to the board’s executive committee.

As a member of the six-person AWC executive committee, Councilmember Mumm will serve on the organization’s budget committee, on the governing board for the AWC Worker’s Comp Retro program, and on the board of AWC Center for Quality Communities, a separate foundation. Mumm was also reelected to the AWC Board.

“AWC offers an exceptional opportunity to work with cities throughout Washington,” Councilmember Mumm said. “I am honored to serve on the AWC executive committee as the Large City Representative. I will continue to work alongside members of the board to highlight the issues facing large cities, including housing, public safety, and homelessness services. By working together, we can urge our state and federal partners to continue making our cities stronger.”

Mumm was joined the AWC Board of Directors in 2018. The City of Spokane, as Washington’s second largest city, holds one single-city district position (District 9) on the AWC Board.

Mumm has served on the Spokane City Council since 2014 and is in her second term.

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.
