Meetings & Events

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.

Members of the steering committee generally meet four times every year: at both the Congressional City Conference and Congress of Cities, as well as at spring and fall meetings. It is at these gatherings that the steering committees discuss advocacy strategies and craft specific NLC policy amendments and resolutions.
