The League's Advocacy Goals Conference is a time for all League members to gather for debate over their legislative and regulatory priorities for the upcoming North Carolina General Assembly's legislative biennium.
The goals up for debate begin with one town's idea. In the year leading up to the Advocacy Goals Conference, League members submit their ideas to the League policy committees for study and consideration. These committees make a recommendation to the NCLM Board of Directors, who then submits a package of goals to the League membership for review. Learn more about the member-driven process.
Before the debate and final voting, League members have one more opportunity to submit goal suggestions. Then, League members narrow all these goals down to the final Municipal Advocacy Goals.
