About the 88th Annual Meeting

The United States Conference of Mayors’ 88th Annual Meeting took place this past June as a smaller virtual convening due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The virtual conference focused on the business of the organization, our policy resolution standing committees, and leadership transition. Originally scheduled to take place in Austin, next year’s Annual Meeting will now take place in Austin as the 89th Annual Meeting.

The virtual meetings began June 22 and concluded July 1.

Adopted Resolutions

Prior to the 88th Annual Meeting virtual session, we called on mayors to submit resolutions for consideration by our standing committees and then the Executive Committee. Below you can find the full listing of the resolutions adopted by the standing committees and Executive Committee during the meeting.

Meeting Recaps

Virtual Plenary Session

On Wednesday, July 1 at noon ET, we hosted our virtual plenary session. It featured remarks by outgoing President Rochester Hills Mayor Bryan Barnett and an inaugural address by President Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.

Executive Committee Meeting

The Conference’s Constitution empowers the Executive Committee to adopt resolutions when the body is not gathered for an Annual Meeting. Thus, on Tuesday, June 30 at 1:00 pm ET, Conference President Rochester Hills Mayor Bryan Barnett led a virtual meeting of the Executive Committee (Business Session) with two primary agenda items: 

  1. The ten standing committee chairs will each present the resolutions that were adopted in the policy standing committees, and the Executive Committee will consider and then vote on those resolutions. Resolutions will be open to amendments during the Executive Committee meeting. 
  2. The Executive Committee will receive the report of the USCM Nominating Committee – who have been appointed by Mayor Barnett – and then the Executive Committee will elect a new President, Vice President, and Second Vice President, as well as elect mayors to fill any vacancies that exist for Trustee or Advisory Board Members.

Prior to this session, the Executive Committee met Tuesday, June 30 at 11:00 am ET in closed session to conduct regular business.

Standing Committee Meetings

Standing Committees will convene each day beginning Monday, June 22. The meetings will occur at 1pm ET and 4pm ET.
