Regional Advocacy Meetings Start Mid-August

​The Municipal Association's Regional Advocacy Meetings, which serve as a time to learn about the past and upcoming legislative sessions and a time to plan out the Association's future advocacy initiatives, will take place around the state.

Each meeting begins at 11 a.m. and ends by 1 p.m. with lunch included. The locations are organized to include one session in each council of governments region, but officials may attend any session even when it is not in their home region.

"It's critical for elected officials and city staff to use these meetings to get their local issues heard, but the exciting part for us is that they don't share just their challenges, they also get to share their ideas on what potential solutions might be available through statewide legislation as well," said Tiger Wells, the Association's director of governmental affairs.

There is no charge for the meetings, but registration is required for an accurate head count for lunch and handouts.
