League Board Will Consider Endorsements for NLC Board and NLC Second Vice President Positions

July 1, 2014
Each year the League board of directors invites membership interested in running for National League of Cities board of directors or for second vice president of the NLC board of directors, to apply for endorsement from our League board of directors.
 
Only city officials in direct member cities of NLC may apply for its board or board officer position (second vice president). The League board will endorse all membership interested in applying for NLC Board, but only one member interested in applying for NLC second vice president. If you are interested in acquiring the League’s endorsement for NLC board or for NLC second vice president, please read further.

Please note that this is not an application to NLCs' board of directors, nor is it an application for NLC second vice president. This is only an endorsement from our League board. 
 
Endorsement Application Process
              
Submitted endorsement applications will be distributed to members of the League’s 2014 Board Nominating Committee. If more than one person is interested in seeking endorsement for NLC second vice president, the committee will interview both candidates to select one prior to the League’s Annual Conference scheduled for Sept. 3-5.
 
The recommendations will then be submitted to the League board for approval when it meets on Thursday, Sept. 4 during annual conference. Candidates receiving the board's endorsement will be announced on Sept. 5 during the closing session of the annual conference.
 
Endorsement applications are due to the League of California Cities by 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 15.
 
Application forms are below:
Please submit endorsement applications via email, fax (916) 658-8240 or snail mail to:
