President Garbarino Appoints 2018 Policy Committee Chairs and Vice Chairs

October 6, 2017
League President Rich Garbarino announced his chair and vice chair appointments to the League’s seven standing policy committees.
 
These appointments set the stage for the committees’ 2018 work, which begins in January when they hold their first meetings in Sacramento. This work serves as the foundation of the League’s strong advocacy on behalf of cities.

The League's policy-making process allows the issues facing California cities to be debated and the organization's policy directions to be established. Close to 400 city officials serve on the League's policy committees and add their collective expertise, wisdom and opinions to the policy debate that is the foundation of League policy. The committees forward their recommendations to the League board of directors for action.
