Still Time To Designate Voting Delegate For Annual Business Meeting

Anyone from a member city is encouraged to attend the Annual Business Meeting, held Friday, September 25, in conjunction with the Annual Conference & Exhibit in Cedar Rapids. However, each member city is only allowed one vote and must designate a voting delegate. The authorized delegate is the mayor or the mayor’s designated alternate. If the mayor chooses not to attend the conference or will not be able to participate in the meeting, the mayor must designate an alternate, which must be done in writing and submitted to the League 10 days prior to the meeting. A sample letter is available in the Annual Conference & Exhibit section of the League’s Web site.

If the mayor has not appointed an alternate in advance, a member city official in attendance at the conference may request that the presiding officer of the meeting designate an individual as the voting delegate. The appointed alternate must fill out the appropriate credentials before 5 p.m., Thursday, September 24; this may be done at the conference registration desk. Remember, all this can be done before conference which will save you time once you arrive at the event.
