Bridgeport councilmember Schuh awarded with Certificate of Municipal Leadership


BRIDGEPORT -  City of Bridgeport council member Matthew Schuh recently earned a 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 five core areas: Roles, responsibilities and legal requirements; Public sector resource management; Community planning and development; Effective local leadership; and Diversity, equity and inclusion.

“Being a city leader in Washington is a complex job,’’ said AWC CEO Deanna Dawson. “Through our CML program we are providing our elected officials with the knowledge they need to effectively operate within the law, plan for the future, secure and manage funds, foster strong relationships, and work to build more equitable communities.’’

Schuh completed more than 30 hours of training to earn this distinction.

AWC serves its members through advocacy, education, and services. Founded in 1933, AWC is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan corporation that represents Washington’s 281 cities and towns before the state legislature, the state executive branch, and with the regulatory agencies.
