Municipal officials will have 10 opportunities to attend a Regional Advocacy Meeting this summer and fall to get involved in the Association’s advocacy efforts. The sessions for elected officials and city staff will feature discussions about bills that passed the General Assembly this session and how they affect cities and towns, plus a look at what is on the horizon for 2017.
This year, local House and Senate delegation members will join municipal officials for a panel discussion on top issues facing the General Assembly in 2017. This is in addition to our regular updates on important legislative issues, such as business licensing and annexation.
The meetings will be held from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. with lunch included. The locations are organized by council of governments region, but officials may attend any session that is convenient. There is no charge for the meetings, but the Association needs an accurate head count for lunch and handouts.
