Redmond Mayor John Marchione presented City Council member Hank Myers with an advanced leadership certificate from the Association of Washington Cities (AWC’s) Municipal Leadership (CML) program at Tuesday's council meeting at City Hall.
This program challenges mayors and city council members to strive for excellence and provides the training they need to effectively deal with complex issues, to operate within the law, plan for the future, secure and manage funds and foster community engagement.
The certificate is recognized as a national benchmark among elected municipal officials and requires a six-month training commitment with workshops and speakers aimed at exposing local officials to the National League of Cities as well as community-based volunteer and organizational activity.
Councilmember Myers will also be recognized in the AWC’s electronic newsletter City Voice and at their annual conference.
