    Each June during the Annual Meeting of Mayors, the Standing Committees recommend the policy positions they believe should be adopted by the organization. At this time, every member attending is given an opportunity to question, discuss and then vote on each policy position. Each city, represented by its Mayor, casts one vote.

    The policy positions adopted at the Annual Meeting reflect the collective views of those charged with administering the nationís cities, and as such, should be known to Congressional leaders and the executive branch of the federal government.

    Following each Annual Meeting, therefore, copies of the official policy positions are presented to the President and to both Houses of Congress.
