Duvall Mayor Amy Ockerlander has been elected to the Sound Cities Association (SCA) Board of Director and will represent the Snoqualmie Valley Caucus in the organization, which represents 38 King County cities and provides a regional voice for nearly one million people.

SCA, which was formerly known as the Suburban Cities Association, was established more than 40 years ago to help King County cities act locally and partner regionally to create vital and thriving communities through advocacy, education, leadership, mutual support and networking.
