Voting Credentials for 2015 CoC Annual Business Meeting Due Oct. 30

The National League of Cities' (NLC) Annual Business Meeting will be held on Saturday, November 7, 2015, at the conclusion of the Congress of Cities and Exposition in Nashville, Tennessee. All direct member cities are entitled to vote at this meeting. Based on population as of the 2010 Census, each member city casts between one and twenty votes. 

To be eligible to cast a city's vote, membership must be up to date, and a voting delegate and/or alternate(s) must be officially designated by the city. Please return the credentials form – a letter and form was mailed to member cities at the end of last month. NLC bylaws expressly prohibit voting by proxy. 

At the Congress of Cities, the voting delegate must pick up and sign for the city's voting card at the Ask NLC Booth before the Annual Business Meeting and must be present at the Annual Business Meeting to cast the city's vote. The Ask NLC Booth will be open during scheduled times throughout the Congress of Cities and Exposition.

All direct member cities are reminded to return the completed form to NLC by mail, fax (202-626-3109) or email before October 30, 2015, and keep a copy for your files. If you have any questions, please contact Mae Davis, at or 202-626-3150; or contact Gail Remy, Director of Membership Development at, or 202-626-3026.
