March 9, 2012
California city officials attending the National League of Cities (NLC) Congressional City Conference in Washington, D.C. next week will join with thousands of city officials from across the country in general sessions, workshops, and strategy meetings built around NLC’s advocacy priorities.
 
Sessions will cover a range of topics, including housing challenges, the federal budget deficit, water infrastructure, economic development, public safety, SAFETEA-LU reauthorization and more. A tentative conference agenda is posted on NLC’s website.
 
The League has organized an event to allow California city officials to meet with fellow California attendees and members of the California Congressional Delegation:
  • Monday, March 12, 6 – 7:30 p.m.: The League will host a reception at Marriott Wardman Hotel in the Lincoln Room 6. Members of the California Congressional Delegation have also been invited to this event.
League Federal Priorities and Letters
 
The League has posted the 2012 Federal Priorities and three background sheets on the League's website that may be informative as city officials prepare to lobby their congressional representatives:
In addition, there are several letters on priority issues that have been sent to Congress over the past year that may be useful in lobbying meetings while at the conference.
