Learn, network, and help develop the League’s legislative platform on these specific issues by joining your colleagues in serving on a 2012 LMC task force.
(Published Jul 25, 2012)
Want to be more involved? Consider attending or signing up for one of the League’s task forces that works in conjunction with our four policy committees.
Who can be on a task force?
Current city officials and staff are eligible, including city councilmembers, mayors, city administrators, assistant city administrators, clerks, human resource staff, municipal election officials, public safety staff, engineers, finance directors, economic development staff, and others. Committee members can be new to their city position, have many years of experience, or be somewhere in between. Not all task force members are members of our policy committees.
What benefits are there to serving on a task force?
It is a great way to become involved with the League, network, and learn about different ways of doing things. Task force members also share and become aware of federal-level issues and associations. Task force members are also sometimes consulted or called upon during the legislative session for their particular expertise on an issue and service to the task force.
Who are the chairs of the task forces?
When and where are the meetings?
Task force meetings are usually called sometime during the policy committee meeting schedule during the summer when an issue may be within the task force jurisdiction and more guidance and technical expertise is needed.
This year, the Elections Task Force is expected to meet multiple times throughout the fall. The next meeting is Monday, Sept. 10 at 11 a.m. at the League.
The next meeting for the TIF Task Force is on Tuesday, Aug. 14 at 9 a.m. at the League.
The next Telecommunications Task Force meeting is on Friday, Aug. 17 at 1 p.m. at the League.
All meetings will be held at the League building, 145 University Ave. W., in St. Paul.
What if I can’t attend each meeting?
A conference call option is available for task force meetings.
