NLC Conference Delegates to Vote on Changes to NLC National Municipal Policy in Nashville
A robust line-up of speakers and sessions that feature inspiring keynote addresses, skill-building seminars, innovate learning approaches, mobile workshops, and great opportunities to network with colleagues from across the country are in store for the thousands of city leaders who will descend upon Nashville, Tennessee, on November 4 - 7 to attend NLC's Congress of Cities conference. In addition to those sessions, important governance activities that involve NLC members will also take place at the conference.
During the conference's Annual Business Meeting on November 7, 2015, the entire NLC membership, including the State Municipal Leagues, will consider changes to NLC's National Municipal Policy (NMP). The NMP is NLC's comprehensive policy platform on federal issues directly affecting or of concern to cities and towns. It serves as the foundation for NLC's federal advocacy efforts on behalf of the nation's cities and towns and is subject to an annual review by the NLC membership during the Congress of Cities. As the foundation for our advocacy efforts, a relevant and robust NMP is essential to our effectiveness on your behalf on Capitol Hill.
Over the course of this year, your colleagues who serve on NLC's Policy and Advocacy Steering Committees have been hard at work reviewing the NMP and developing recommendations for changes where needed. So that you have ample time in advance to review the proposed changes that will be considered in Nashville, you can view them now by clicking here.
