Standing Committees

The United States Conference of Mayors’ Standing Committees consider policy resolutions during each Annual Meeting in June. Adopted resolutions become the official policy of the organization. The President has the power to name Standing Committee Chairs and Vice Chairs.

Task Forces, Alliances, Councils and Forums

A Task Force is created by the President of the Conference to address individual issues requiring the immediate attention of a select group of mayors. Task Force recommendations are submitted to the organization as a whole and generally serve as the basis for Conference policy positions. A Task Force is not intended to serve as a permanent body within the organization. The President, Vice President, and Second Vice President serve ex-officio on all Task Forces.
