Municipal Advocacy Goals


Prior to the beginning of a legislative biennium, the League’s member cities and towns work together to develop a list of Municipal Advocacy Goals that guide the League’s advocacy and lobbying efforts at the state and federal level. This member-driven policy development process results in policy recommendations for the League’s Core Municipal Principles​ and Municipal Advocacy Goals that are voted on by the League’s Board of Directors. ​

The League’s Public and Government Affairs staff relies upon the member-driven process and subsequently-approved policies for direction in lobbying efforts at the NC General Assembly, before​ State Boards and Commissions, and at the federal level.

Be sure that your voice is heard during this process by joining a Policy Committee​ and/or attending the biennial Municipal Advocacy Goals Conference​.
