Dear League members,

Like many of you, we have been following the COVID-19 virus closely. Earlier this week, several NLC board members, a subset of state league directors and I met with Vice President Pence for a briefing about the virus and our role in this public health crisis. His message was clear—he recognized your leadership value and credibility among citizens and directed local government to be leaders in the mitigation efforts related to COVID-19.

To support our collective efforts, NCLM staff has been in regular contact with the governor’s office and other state health officials. Following Gov. Roy Cooper's recommended precautions—including canceling large group gatherings—detailed on yesterday’s NCLM-hosted conference call with 900+ local leaders, we have decided to cancel CityVision 2020. All registered attendees will receive a full refund as described below.

Planning has begun for holding a virtual Annual Business Meeting as an alternative to the in-person meeting associated with the conference. This will allow us to fulfill NCLM’s constitutional requirements, including the election of our 2020-2021 Board of Directors. More information will be shared as the plans and logistics next week.

Please know we did not come to this decision lightly. CityVision is our premier event, where members look forward to learning about the latest topics and spending time with colleagues from across the state. Our priority is our members’ health and safety, along with the health and safety of all residents. We must do our part to support the federal government’s and the Governor’s public health strategies and limit the spread of the virus, and we appreciate your assistance in this endeavor. NCLM will continue to update our website with the latest information and resources about COVID-19, www.nclm.org/coronavirus.​

If you have CityVision registration questions, please email events@nclm.org. Thank you for your understanding and your leadership as this issue continues to evolve.

Sincerely,

Paul Meyer
Executive Director​
