About the Sound Cities Association Board of Directors
The SCA Board of Directors oversees the general activities of the Sound Cities Association, and governs the organization by establishing broad policies and objectives for SCA. While the Public Issues Committee (PIC) brings forward public policy positions and makes recommendations on appointments to regional boards and committees, the Board is ultimately responsible for adopting those policy positions and making those appointments. The Board recommends the Annual SCA Budget to the SCA Membership for approval, and is charged with establishing the association’s mission and purpose, selecting its executive, ensuring effective organizational planning, ensuring that the association has adequate resources and that those resources are managed effectively, determining and monitoring the association’s programs and services, and enhancing the association’s public image.
The Executive Committee of the Board of Directors is composed of the President, Vice President, Past President, Treasurer, and Director-at-Large. The Finance Committee of the Board is chaired by the Treasurer. Other committees are established by the Board as necessary, such as ad hoc committees focused on a particular topic. In addition to the Board Committees, Directors serve on the SCA Events Committee. Through these committees, the SCA Board of Directors is able to more effectively tackle necessary work of SCA throughout the year.
The SCA Board of Directors has thirteen directors: four from the North Caucus; one from the Snoqualmie Valley Caucus; four from the South Caucus; one from the South Valley Caucus; the Past President of the Board; the Public Issues Committee (PIC) Chair; and the City Manager/Administrator representative. The Regional Caucus Directors serve two-year terms with a maximum of three consecutive terms. The PIC Chair and the City Manager/Administrator representative serve one-year terms with a maximum of three consecutive terms. Every December the Regional Caucuses meet to review nominees for open seats on the SCA Board of Directors and elect their own regional representative(s).
