As a member of WSAC or any of the affiliate groups, you have access to all of our resources and services, ranging from communications to educational programs and various events and programs designed to provide networking and professional development opportunities. We want to support you to become a great leader for your county!
Not only are you part of an outstanding community, where layers of county leaders from all departments can engage and advance their knowledge, you are supported by a collective voice that can make an impact for your county.
Advocacy - One of our primary goals is to advocate on behalf of counties at the legislative level. Our skilled and knowledgeable staff and contractors work with state departments and regulatory agencies to support sound policy and fiscal strategies that sustain the basic government services that ensure the health and safety of all Washingtonians.
Training and Education - We offer online recorded webinars on a variety of topics to keep you apprised of current regulations and information. WSAC members have access to a certification course, designed for newly elected officials to get them up to speed fast. We host regular live virtual assemblies via Zoom to address emerging issues. And of course, our annual County Leaders Conference is the premiere event to bring everyone together for networking and learning. If there is a topic you don't see, but want to learn about, please let us know!
Legal Services - The Strategic Litigation, Advocacy, and Communication program ensures that the use of legal action is an effective tool to advance the WSAC policy agenda in coordination with legislative advocacy strategies and actions.
Information, Research, and Resources - Our goal is to provide you with useful, responsive, and time-senstive data so you can make informed decisions and respond to emerging issues. Our website contains data dashboards, legislative policy agendas, end-of-session reports, annual reports, and important links to many other areas of resources that can be your go-to when researching.
Cost Savings - WSAC has a growing list of business partners that are dedicated to partnering with counties to provide cost savings and grow public-private connections to foster relationships. We also work with the National Association of Counties (NACo), utilizing their nationwide buying power to save you more. Check back often as the benefit options continue to grow!
