The League relies on a slate of standing and ad-hoc member committees to advise League staff in several areas. The League Executive Board President traditionally makes assignments to open committee seats each November after taking office. The length of the assignment and the frequency of committee meetings depends on the purpose of each committee. When possible, committee members are selected from the pool of those that have expressed interest in serving.
The Iowa League of Cities is governed by and run with the generous assistance of our members. The League assembles several committees and working groups throughout the year.
This committee is intended to formalize input from our associates on League programs.
The Audit Committee reviews the audited financial statements prepared by the League’s auditor, meets with the auditor to discuss the audit, and submits a recommendation regarding the audit to the League Executive Board.
The Awards Panel reviews applications and recommends candidates for the Hall of Fame award and the Rhonda Wood-Smith award. The committee is comprised of the three League officers plus the following Hall of Fame members.
This committee was formed in 2014 to assist the Executive Board and staff in the development of a long-term financial stability plan to ensure the sustainability of the League. The committee was repurposed to add the more general focus on assisting staff with review of finances and the annual League budget.
The Education Committee provides overall review of our educational efforts.
The committee assists the Executive Board and staff in reviewing, prioritizing and strategizing on the wide variety of environmental regulatory issues.
This committee will be asked to review current services offered to the membership and provide suggestions for ways to improve what we offer as well as ideas for new services.
