RITZVILLE - City Councilwoman Michelle Plumb recently earned the Certificate of Municipal Leadership from the Association of Washington Cities.

Plumb said the training was free of charge.

"You just have to work for it," said Plumb.

The Certificate of Municipal Leadership Program recognizes city and town elected officials for accomplishing training in four core areas:

• Roles, responsibilities and legal requirements

• Public sector resource management

• Community planning and development

• Effective local leadership

"Cities and towns around the state are continually transforming in light of changing laws and the need to meet new challenges and opportunities," association Chief Executive Officer Peter B. King said. "Our certificate of Municipal Leadership program helps mayors and council members sharpen the tools they need 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 strong desire to bring new ideas back."

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

She has served on city council and its committees the past four years.

"Michelle leads the way finding sign project and is essential in improving municipal processes and updates to the city codes," said Clerk-Treasurer Julie Flyckt.
