Re: 2009 League Conference Resolutions
One of the most important functions of the Annual League Conference is the adoption of resolutions from member municipalities. The resolutions in essence, play a major part in setting the League’s legislative priorities for the forthcoming legislative session. We encourage you to consider the resolutions process as an opportunity to help craft good legislation to improve the institution of municipal government.
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 the first Friday in October (October 2nd) the full text of the resolution is due to the League office by October 16th.
The Resolutions Policy and Procedures is enclosed. You will note that the League Executive Board has made some changes which, are designed to encourage your involvement in this very important process. If you have any questions on this, please do not hesitate to call League Senior Legislative Analyst Michael Cerra at (609) 695-3481 x120 or Bill Dressel at (609) 695-3481 x122.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
