Join the League Lobby Team

As an elected or appointed municipal official, you can advocate for your municipality by joining the League’s Lobby Team.  

Team members are invited to the League's Lobby Days, scheduled three or four times during each two-year legislative session. Lobby Day starts at 9:15 a.m. with a briefing on legislative priorities. 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 for their legislative meetings and then reconvenes to report out over lunch.

As part of the team, you'll also be invited to participate in behind the scenes interactive political briefings provided by webinar.
