Proposed legislative policies are initially reviewed by three policy committees of volunteer municipal officials. The organizational meeting of those committees this year was on April 1st and the committees completed their work in late May, and legislative policy recommendations for 2023-2024 were e-mailed to each municipality’s governing body on June 8th. (If your municipality did not receive them, please notify us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 603-224-7447).
We strongly encourage each municipality’s governing body to review the legislative policy recommendations and determine a position on each recommendation. These positions should not be sent to NHMA. Rather, they should be communicated to the person who will serve as the municipality’s delegate to the NHMA legislative policy conference. Otherwise, the delegate is free to vote as he or she sees fit on all policy recommendations. NHMA’s bylaws require a two-thirds affirmative vote of those members present and voting for approval of any NHMA legislative policy or principle.
Thank you to all who volunteered their time to serve on one of the three legislative policy committees which convened this spring to bring forth these legislative recommendations. NHMA is so grateful for your participation and support. Without you, this legislative event wouldn’t be possible.
