Frequently Asked Questions

What will I learn at this training?

As an attendee of this training, you will gain the tools necessary to transition into public service with confidence, learn the key aspects of being a successful part of a governing body, acquire knowledge about the fundamental issues, and connect with other elected officials around the state. You will also meet the staff and hear more about the resources available through the Washington Association of County Officials.

How much does it cost to attend?

The event is free for newly elected officials, or officials appointed after January 1, 2015, but you will want to request reimbursement from your county to offset travel and lodging costs.

What if I don’t want to be a WACO Member?

By successfully obtaining a county elected office you automatically become a member of WACO and will immediately have access to all the resources and services provided by the Association. We look forward to getting to know you through your participation in WACO's advocacy efforts, committees, and conferences.
