As an elected or appointed municipal official, you can advocate for your municipality by joining the League’s Lobby Team.
Capitol Lobby Days are held three to four times during the Legislature's two-year legislative session. On Lobby Day, League staff brief the Lobby Team prior to Capitol meetings and provide memos on League priorities. (If travel costs are a barrier, reference the League's mileage and hotel reimbursement policy below.)
As part of the team, you'll also be invited to participate in behind the scenes interactive political briefings provided by webinar.
Fill out the sign up form to join the Lobbying Team. If you have any questions, please contact Gail Sumi at 608-267-4477 or via email.
