As an elected or appointed municipal official, you can advocate for your municipality by joining the League’s Lobbying Team.
As a Lobby Team member you'll be invited to the League's Lobby Days, scheduled three or four times during each two-year legislative session. Lobby Day starts at 9:30 a.m. with a briefing on legislative priority issues. League staff provide briefing materials as well as League memos for you to use when you meet with your Legislators. After the briefing, everyone goes to the Capitol to meet with their Legislators and everyone reconvenes to report out over lunch.
In addition, you'll be invited to participate in behind the scenes interactive political briefings by webinar.
Lobby Team Travel Expenses Reimbursed
The League reimburses you for mileage expenses and will also reimburse one night’s lodging and meals if you travel more than 400 miles round trip to attend Lobby Day.
The reimbursement form (PDF) with receipts for lodging and meals must be submitted to the League.
If there is an active lobbying campaign, you can advocate for your community by contacting your Legislators. Click through and your Legislators are identified for you. We make it easy for you by providing a message that you can customize. Take action.
Rapid Action Team
If you prefer not to travel, join the Rapid Action Team - the League’s virtual lobby team. You will receive an email alert with talking points from the League and are asked to communicate the League's position quickly to your Legislators. We then ask that you report back and let us know what you hear from your state elected officials.
