Adopted Policies

During the Conference’s Annual Meeting every June, standing committees recommend policy positions they believe should be adopted by the organization. At this time, every member attending the Annual Meeting is given the opportunity to discuss and then vote on each policy resolution. Each city, represented by its mayor, casts one vote. The policy positions adopted at the Annual Meeting collectively represent the views of the nation’s mayors and are distributed to the President of the United States and Congress.
