Applications for NLC leadership positions due soon.

Elected officials from NLC member cities and towns who are interested in participating actively in shaping organizational agendas, helping to define federal policy positions, and working on a range of issues are urged to submit applications over the coming weeks.

Applications for chair and vice chair positions on NLC's standing committees, councils and panels are due Monday, October 3. Applications to serve on any NLC standing committee, council, or panel are due Monday, November 14.

NLC First Vice President James Hunt, councilmember from Clarksburg, W.Va., will appoint chairs, vice, chairs and committee members before the end of the year so that the leadership team is in place when he is elected NLC President on December 10 at the Annual Business Meeting.

"I urge elected officials from NLC member cities and towns to get involved by serving on one of our committees," Hunt said. "NLC is a very member driven organization, and we value and need the active participation of city officials from all of our member cities to ensure that our priorities meet the needs of the cities we represent."

Hunt served on a variety of committees before his election as an NLC Officer, including both vice chair and chair of the Leadership Training Council.

City officials interested in running for the NLC Board of Directors should submit a candidate data form to indicate their interest to the Nominating Committee. NLC President Anthony A. Williams, mayor of Washington, D.C., will appoint the Nominating Committee early next month.

Candidates for appointments are also urged to contact their state municipal league to discuss opportunities for getting involved in NLC.
