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

July 1, 2016
Each year the League of California Cities® board of directors invites membership interested in running for National League of Cities (NLC) 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.
 
Please note that this is not an application to the NLC board, nor is it an application for NLC second vice president. This is only an endorsement from the League of California Cities board. 
 
Endorsement Application Process
 
Submitted endorsement applications will be distributed to members of the League’s 2016 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 Oct. 5–7.
 
The recommendations will then be submitted to the League board for approval when it meets on Thursday, Oct. 6, during annual conference. Candidates receiving the board's endorsement will be announced on Oct. 7 during the closing session of the annual conference.
 
Endorsement applications are due to the League by 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 2.
 
Application forms are below: Please submit endorsement applications via email, fax (916) 658-8240 or mail to:
Attn: Mimi Sharpe
1400 K Street, 4th Floor
Sacramento, CA 95814
 
Individuals who are elected to the NLC board of directors automatically obtain a seat on the League board of directors for the period of the NLC board term.

Applications for the NLC board and second vice president will be available in late August or early September and will be due sometime in October.
