CMO 58: Municipal Legislative Advocacy 

The League's Annual Legislative Advocacy CMO is specifically designed to allow municipal officials to share their ideas and concerns with the state’s political leadership. It is important that the vital role our municipalities play in economic development, community enhancement and quality of life is repeatedly articulated to our state representatives.The League's Municipal Legislative Advocacy Session provides a unique opportunity each year for municipal leaders to take their messages to the State House - and for the power of the ALM membership's collective voice to be heard.  A strong municipal presence at the State House demonstrates the effectiveness of the state's cities and towns in building a stronger Alabama economy. 

TOPICS:  Legislative Challenges & Opportunities, Legislative Leadership/Session Outlook, Are We Being Heard?  The Importance of Messaging, and Municipal Official's Grassroots Strategies.

CMO CREDIT:  This session has been approved for four (4) Basic, Advanced or Emeritus hours in the Certified Municipal Official Program.  2 of the 4 approved hours meet core curriculum requirements.  Any municipal employee may register, but only elected officials will be awarded credit hours in the CMO Program.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:    Elected Officials and Municipal Personnel
