October 24, 2018
League President Jan Arbuckle announced her chair and vice chair appointments to the League’s seven standing policy committees
These appointments set the stage for the committees’ 2019 work, which will begin 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 committees forward their recommendations to the League board of directors for action.
