Members submit their ideas for legislative goals. Ideas should fit into the League’s overarching policy focus areas, be actionable and be applicable to cities and towns statewide.
The NCLM Legislative Policy Committee considers all submitted ideas through the lens of the Core Municipal Principles and policy focus areas and submits its suggestions to the NCLM Board of Directors.
After reviewing and refining the NCLM Legislative Policy Committee’s suggestions, the NCLM Board of Directors presents the goals to the entire membership for a vote.
Each municipality casts a single vote on the policy goals and the results are used by League staff, members and legislative leaders to advance the agenda together.
