Genaveve Starr, Sequim City Councilmember, recently received a Certificate of Municipal Leadership (CML) from the Association of Washington Cities (AWC). Starr completed over 30 hours of training credits to earn this distinction.
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, the official attends a variety of AWC-sponsored municipal workshops. The courses help mayors and councilmembers learn the essentials of municipal service and improve their ability to work with council colleagues, city staff, and citizens.
Starr was first appointed to the City Council in January 2013 and then elected to a four-year term later that year. Her current term expires on 12/31/2017. Starr currently serves as a representative to the Sister City Association, the Clallam Transit System Board, the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce, and as an alternate to the Peninsula Regional Transportation Planning Organization.
