Marysville City Councilmember completes rigorous statewide training program
The Association of Washington Cities has recognized Marysville City Councilmember Michael Stevens for successful completion of its Advanced Certificate of Municipal Leadership (CML) training program.
Stevens completed more than 60 hours of training credits in the CML program, designed to enhance the ability of local elected officials by providing knowledge and skills to operate within the law, plan for the future, secure and manage funds, and foster community and staff relationships.
“Being able to learn from the experience of others in cities and towns across the state has been beneficial for my growth as a councilmember,” Stevens said.
First elected to the City Council in November 2011, Stevens previously served on the City Planning Commission. He is a partner with Everett-based Dykeman Architects and holds a bachelor's degree in Architecture from the University of Kentucky and a master's degree in Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania.
