Duvall Mayor Amy Ockerlander has been elected to the Sound Cities Association (SCA) Board of Directors and will represent the Snoqualmie Valley caucus in the organization, which represents 38 King County cities and provides a regional voice for nearly one million people.

“Mayor Ockerlander has been a strong leader in addressing policy issues through SCA and other regional organizations for a number of years,” said Deanna Dawson, SCA Executive Director. “We look forward to working with her as a newly elected SCA board member to continue to address the challenges and opportunities that our communities face throughout King County.”

SCA provides regional leadership in areas such as economic and community development, transportation, land use, health, government operations, the environment, education, public safety, social welfare and other public policy issues.

Ockerlander served on the Duvall City Council from 2010-17 before being elected Mayor in 2017. In addition to her work with SCA, her current assignments include serving as a member of the Washington State Emergency Management Committee (representing Association of Washington Cities), the Puget Sound Regional Council Executive Committee, the King County Regional Transit Committee; and the Snoqualmie Valley Governments Association, Eastside.

Ockerlander earned a certificate of Advanced Municipal Leadership through the Association of Washington Cities in 2013, and Bronze Level certification through the National League of Cities Leadership Training Institute in 2012. She is also a 2013 graduate of both the Leadership Eastside Leadership program and Leadership Eastside Executive Insight.
