Member Driven Policy Development


In forming positions on legislative and regulatory issues, the League utilizes a member-driven policy development process.

How Does it Work?

Before a final vote by the entire membership at the League’s biennial Advocacy Goals Conference​, the League’s legislative and regulatory policy options are studied, debated and prioritized at the policy committee level, sent to the Board of Directors for recommendations, and reviewed by the membership.

Where Do Ideas Come From?

  • Ideas, issues and subjects for study come from municipal officials, member cities and towns, or are based on questions and inquiries from officials.
  • State agencies and divisions may propose new policies, regulations or legislation, prompting review of League policy.
  • The League’s Board of Directors may refer issues or policies to a Policy Committee.
