State municipal leagues occupy a special position within the National League of Cities. They were the founding members of NLC and they continue to play an important role at NLC, guiding the organization's priorities and serving as an important link to cities in their state.
An e-mail list (listserv) is a list of e-mail addresses of people interested in a certain subject. Each list has its own address for distribution among its members and provides for timely information sharing between NLC and state leagues, as well as among state leagues.
State League staff subscribed to the list will receive discussion contributions and questions from other list members. You may reply to these messages or send new questions or discussion topics at any time. Any message you send to the list will be distributed to every other member of the list.
NLC has created the following private e-mail lists available only to state league directors and staff:
League directors and staff may subscribe to multiple lists.
To subscribe to a state league staff discussion list, contact Rasheeda Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
State league policies, practices, priorities, and interests are surveyed annually. These include the Annual Convention Survey for State Municipal Leagues and the State Municipal League Legislative Issues and Priorities Survey. Please see below the links to these two surveys.
The State League Steering Committee is composed of eight state league executive directors, each representing a region of the country, and who also serve, by virtue of their positions on the steering committee, as members of the NLC Board of Directors. The responsibilities of the steering committee include:
The members of the steering committee represent each of the eight NLC geographic regions. Each of the committee members is elected for two-year terms by the league directors in their respective regions at the annual league directors summer meeting, with half of the members changing each year. A chairman of the committee is elected by the members of the incoming steering committee at the annual summer meeting of the league directors.
