Re: 2011 Conference Resolutions
Attention Municipal Clerk: PLEASE BRING THIS TO THE ATTENTION OF YOUR MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF YOUR GOVERNING BODY
This is a reminder that member municipalities wishing to submit resolutions for consideration by the League Resolutions Committee at the Annual Conference must send a summary of the resolution to the League office by October 7, 2011 and the full text of the resolution October 21, 2011.
Too often, we are forced to react to policy initiatives advanced by the special interests, that continue to proliferate in our state’s and our nation’s capitals. But, our League resolutions adoption process gives us a chance to take the initiative and to push for policies that you have identified as important to your town and your constituents.
Please, talk this over with your governing body members and administrative officers. Then, by drafting a resolution, let us know what state or federal policies need to be changed to allow you to better serve the people who put you in office.
A copy of the Resolutions Policy and Procedures is enclosed.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
