Policy & Advocacy Committees (Full)

NLC's seven Policy & Advocacy Committees play an important role in shaping the organization's annual legislative agenda. Local officials from cities and towns across the country are appointed annually by state municipal leagues to serve one-year terms with no term limits.

Members of the full Policy & Advocacy Committees are required to meet twice every year: once at the Congressional City Conference in Washington, and again in the fall at the Congress of Cities. At these meetings, committee members are called upon not only to advocate for NLC's legislative priorities, but also to review and approve the policy proposals and resolutions that guide the organization and its federal relations team in all outreach efforts.
