Town Hall Day is the League's premier opportunity for members to visit legislators and make their views known. Each legislative session, hundreds of elected and appointed city officials gather in Raleigh for an entire day of grassroots lobbying. Town Hall Day is a prime opportunity to show strength in numbers and draw attention to the many serious legislative issues facing cities and towns.
Prepare to Engage
All Town Hall Day activities are geared to facilitating individual conversations between League officials and their hometown legislators. A typical day includes a legislative briefing by members of the League's Government Affairs staff, meetings with House and Senate legislative leaders, discussions with state agency leaders, individual meetings with district legislators, attendance at key committee meetings and full legislative sessions, and an evening reception with legislators.
The day is full, and nothing can replace the positive impact of an in-person conversation on a legislator's vote. Make sure you do not miss this opportunity.
Registration is now open. Find details and register here.
