ECB Role
The role of the ECB is specified in RCW 90.71.250(5). The ECB is required to assist with compilation of local programs for inclusion in the Action Agenda (RCW 90.71.250(5)(a)). Upon request of the Leadership Council, it can make recommendations regarding the Action Agenda (RCW 90.71.250(5)(b)). The ECB also has the duty to seek funding to implement the Action Agenda, assist the Leadership Council with public education, and recruit involvement and collaboration to achieve Sound recovery (RCW 90.71.250(c)(d) and (e)).

Additionally, the role of the Board should be to focus on implementation of the Action Agenda, build and deploy broad-based support for the Action Agenda, and provide guidance to the Leadership Council on priority actions to move forward.

Other ECB roles include:

  • Provide input to the Leadership Council on specific key policy decisions,
  • Provide cross-caucus reporting and dialog on priority issues,
  • Provide input to the Leadership Council on key legislative priorities,
  • Engage in the Puget Sound Partnership legislative agenda,
  • Help to advance specific implementation priorities,
  • Problem-solve around Action Agenda priorities, emerging issues, and implementation roadblocks,
  • Coordinate with the Science Panel, and
  • Help to focus local integration efforts and implementation support.

The role of subcommittees created by the Board is to focus on one identified priority to develop implementation strategies and bring issues to the full Board for further deliberation.
