The National League of Cities is now accepting applications from city officials for the 2014 Policy and Advocacy committees. NLC’s Policy and Advocacy committees develop National Municipal Policy positions for consideration by membership at the annual business meeting during the Congress of Cities and Exposition. These positions form the basis for NLC's advocacy on matters of interest to municipal governments before Congress, the courts and federal agencies. More information about the Committees can be found here.
The application can be found here and must be submitted online. The deadline for submitting applications is Friday, January 24, 2014.
NLC's Policy and Advocacy Committees meet twice a year. In 2014, the first meeting will be during the Congressional City Conference, Washington, D.C., March 8-12, 2014, and the second meeting will be during the Congress of Cities and Exposition, November 18 – 22, 2014, in Austin, Texas.
City officials who served on a Policy and Advocacy Committee in 2013 will be automatically reappointed to that Committee and do not need to submit a new application.
If you are currently serving on a Policy and Advocacy Committee and are interested in serving on a different Committee, or have other questions about joining a comittee, please contact Avery Peters.
