Mayor Barb Tolbert recently received an Advanced Certificate of Municipal Leadership from the Association of Washington Cities (AWC).

 AWC's Certificate of Municipal Leadership program recognizes city and town elected officials for accomplishing training in four core areas:

nRoles, responsibilities and legal requirements.

nPublic sector resource management.

nCommunity planning and development.

nEffective local leadership.

Those who earn the advanced certificate continue to strive for excellence by attending conferences and trainings, serving their community, and further developing leadership skills.

"Cities and towns around the state are continually transforming in light of changing laws and the need to meet new challenges and opportunities," said AWC CEO Peter B. King.

"Our Advanced Certificate of Municipal Leadership recognizes mayors and council members who continue to enhance the tools they need today to understand the legal landscape, plan for the future, manage their resources, and foster strong relationships. The elected officials who earn this certificate demonstrate a commitment to continuous learning and a desire to bring new ideas back to their community," said King.

To earn the Advanced Certificate of Municipal Leadership, Mayor Tolbert completed more than 60 hours of training credits and demonstrated community service.

Mayor Tolbert is entering her sixth year as the elected Mayor of Arlington. She currently serves as the co-vice chair of Snohomish County Tomorrow, on the executive board of Snohomish County Cities, on the PSRC Executive Board, Snohomish County Community Services Advisory Council, and the WSU Everett Advisory Board.
