Councilman Crawford earns CML award


Len Crawford, council member for the City of Goldendale, recently received an Advanced Certificate of Municipal Leadership (CML) from the Association of Washington Cities (AWC). Councilmember Crawford completed more than 60 hours of training credits to earn this distinction and demonstrated valuable service to his community.

The CML program is designed to enhance the ability of elected municipal officials by providing knowledge and skills to effectively operate within the law, plan for the future, secure and manage funds and foster community and staff relationships. To earn this certificate, Crawford attended a variety of AWC sponsored municipal workshops. The courses help mayors and council members learn the essentials of municipal service and improve their ability to work with council colleagues, city staff, and citizens.

AWC is a private, non-profit, non-partisan 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 maintains 100 percent participation from Washington's 281 cities and towns. The goal of AWC is to create and maintain livable cities and towns throughout the state.
