History of PSWCC

PSWCC was formed as a result of a January 2007 community summit on sustainability in which attendees concluded there was a need to coordinate sustainability efforts across Washington County.

2008: An intergovernmental agreement was signed between the Partners to create PSWCC.

2009: PSWCC hired a full-time Coordinator.

2012: The intergovernmental agreement was terminated in lieu of a simpler organizational structure. Based on size and type of organization (e.g., public, private, nonprofit) organizations pay a membership fee that helps offset the cost of a part-time Coordinator. Washington County houses the staff member and subsidizes the remaining cost of this employee.

Present: The organization operates under a Membership Agreement, which is renewed through the payment of annual dues.
