A New Arrow in the Quiver: League Rolls-Out New Mobile App to Connect City Officials Instantly with Legislators

City Officials Can Join Exclusive League Advocacy Team

May 1, 2015
On Wednesday during Legislative Action Day, the League rolled-out a new advocacy tool that will enable city officials to play an active role in shaping state policy.
 
This new advocacy app will help the League mobilize our city officials to quickly advocate as a united voice on key city-related pieces of legislation. The app will push out action alerts and enable users to take direct action right from their mobile devices.

The new tool’s goal is two-fold:
  1. Increase membership participation on legislative advocacy; and
  2. Rapidly respond to “action alerts” from wherever a city official might be located by receiving an alert directly to their cell phone via text message or push notification. 
While anyone in the public can download the League app, the League’s Legislative Advocacy section within the app is EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE ONLY to city officials that volunteer and sign-up to be part of the League’s Advocacy Team. The public can download the League’s free app, but the Legislative Advocacy portion of the app is a secured site in which participants will need to register with the League.
 
To learn more about this tool and become a part of the League’s Advocacy Team, please contact your regional public affairs manager.
