Commissioner Overbay appointed to WCRP Executive Committee

Chelan County Commissioner Kevin Overbay has been appointed to the Executive Committee of the Washington Counties Risk Pool (WCRP). Established in 1988 and representing 25 of Washington’s 39 counties, the WCRP was “created by counties for counties” to provide its member counties programs of joint self-insurance, joint purchasing of insurance and joint contracting for or hiring of personnel to provide risk management, claims handling, and administrative services.

The WCRP is governed by its Board of Directors, which is comprised of one director representing each of the member counties. Overbay has been a director on the board since January 2019. Eleven directors are appointed to serve the Executive Committee, which provides oversight to the WCRP. Executive Committee members approve monthly expenditures and review general business of the WCRP. Committee members also review any claims made against the WCRP or its members.

And the committee members work with the Washington State Association of Counties and the Washington Association of County officials in considering statutory and regulatory issues impacting the counties. Overbay was unanimously appointed to the Executive Committee last month at the WCRP conference, which was hosted by Chelan County at the Wenatchee Convention Center. He will serve in the position through September 2023.
