About SCA

Partnership. Leadership. Results.


The Sound Cities Association (SCA) represents 37 cities of King County and provides a voice for over one million people.


SCA was founded in the 1970s to help cities act locally and partner regionally to create vital, livable communities through advocacy, education, leadership, mutual support and networking.


The vision of the SCA is to be the most influential advocate for cities, effectively collaborating to create regional solutions. We provide leadership on economic and community development, transportation, land use, health, government operations, environment, education, public safety, social welfare and other public policy issues.


We are proud of our collaboration with King County, Washington State, the Puget Sound Regional Council, Association of Washington Cities and other regional organizations.


We invite your participation and support!
