League LINC, the Legislative Information Network of Communities, is the grassroots network established for and powered by city and town municipal officials, leaders and professionals. The League LINC mission is to engage League members and their communities in legislative advocacy in a way that gains strength through unity and provides value through relationships.
The League's elected municipal officials and staff members serving their communities are all affected by state and federal decisions. The League LINC program encourages participation in the advocacy process in a number of different ways. League LINC members record their relationships with state legislators, have conversations with state decision-makers, serve on League policy committees, participate in Quick Connect Teams, serve on state boards and commissions, keep track of important bills, understand issues important to municipalities, and attend many events to interact with legislators, such as Town Hall Day.
JOIN LEAGUE LINC. This is your chance to be the link to change in your community, connecting you and your residents with those elected to state leadership.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can
change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
~ Margaret Mead
