CMO 61: 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 Panel/Session Outlook and Opportunity Zones.

CMO CREDIT:  This session has been approved for a total of four (4) Basic, Advanced or Emeritus credit hours in the Certified Municipal Official Program. The first 3 hours are awarded based on session attendance.  The final hour is awarded based on a legislative visit at the State House.

Credit hours are not awarded in the core curriculum for duplicate training. Any municipal employee may register, but only elected officials will be awarded credit hours in the CMO Program.
