PULLMAN, WA—The Association of Washington Cities (AWC) has presented Pullman Councilmember Megan Guido with a Certificate of Municipal Leadership (CML).

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

Guido, who completed more than 30 hours of training credits to earn this distinction, joins others who are currently serving Pullman. Mayor Glenn Johnson and Councilmembers Francis Benjamin, Nathan Weller, and Pat Wright have achieved both the CML and the Advanced CML.

“Being a city leader in Washington is a complex job,” said AWC CEO Deanna Dawson. “Through our CML program we are providing our elected officials with the knowledge they need to effectively operate within the law, plan for the future, secure and manage funds, foster strong relationships, and work to build more equitable communities.”

AWC serves its members through advocacy, education, and services. Founded in 1933, AWC is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan corporation that represents Washington's 281 cities and towns before the state legislature, the state executive branch, and with regulatory agencies. 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.
