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.

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.
