With New League Resolution Process Cities Encouraged to Start Early

Resolutions Due by July 20

May 22, 2013
The League’s Annual Conference is Sept. 18–20, but the deadline for resolution submission is coming up fast and it’s important for city officials to understand some slight changes to the process.
 
Cities interested in submitting a resolution for consideration by the General Assembly are encouraged to begin their work earlier than they may have in previous years.
 
The League’s board of directors at its April meeting voted to amend the League’s bylaws to require that any resolution submitted to the General Assembly must be concurred in by city officials from at least five or more cities. Please see Economic Development, Realignment, CalPERS Sustainability and “League Bylaw Amendments top League Board Agenda Last Week” in the May 2 issue of CA Cities Advocate.
 
Those submitting resolutions should be prepared to provide written documentation of concurrence by city officials from at least five or more cities. This may be in the form of a letter from the city official in support or identification and signature of the city official in support on the resolution itself. The concurrences whether in the form of a letter or signature must accompany the resolution by the submission deadline of midnight, July 20.
 
Resolutions may be sent to:
League of California Cities
Attention: Meg Desmond
1400 K Street, Suite 400

Resolutions may also be emailed to Meg Desmond or faxed to (916) 658-8240.
