About

The Counties of Washington State

The Washington State Association of Counties was founded in 1906 to assist counties in legislative efforts at the state legislature, advocating for counties always with resources for communications, county administration, and more.

While voting within the organization is limited to county commissioners, council members and county executives, the Association also serves as an umbrella organization for affiliate organizations representing county road engineers, local public health officials, county administrators, emergency managers, county human service administrators, clerks of county boards, and others. In addition, we work closely with our sister organization, the Washington Association of County Officials (WACO), which serves independently elected non-judicial county officials including auditors, treasurers, prosecutors, coroners, clerks, and sheriffs.
