Authorize support the proposed bylaws amendments prior to Delegate Jenny McAdams' vote at the Closing Luncheon and General Assembly at the League of California Cities Annual Conference.
During a special board meeting on August 17, 2021 the League of California Cities Board of Directors approved proposed bylaws amendments to enhance Cal Cities’ governance and effectuate technical changes. The proposed bylaws amendments will go before the General Assembly for a vote at the Annual Business meeting on September 24, 2021 during the Annual Conference and Expo in Sacramento. At least two-thirds of the General Assembly must vote in favor of the proposed bylaws amendments in order for them to take effect.

Proposed Bylaws: The attached Proposed Bylaws Amendments packet includes background information, a resolution for adopting the bylaws amendments, a summary of the proposed changes to the bylaws, and a full redlined version of the proposed changes to the bylaws. Specifically, the proposed bylaws amendments would accomplish the following:
  1. Recognize the Cal Cities diversity caucuses in the Cal Cities bylaws to reflect the full contribution the caucuses make to Cal Cities’ mission and vision.
  2. Adjust the composition of the Board to achieve a higher impact and be more representative by adding Director seats to the Board for each of the five Diversity Caucuses, and transitioning members of the National League of Cities Board from Cal Cities Directors to one non-voting advisor to the Cal Cities Board. 
  3. Update the League of California Cities’ moniker to “Cal Cities” to promote consistency.
  4. Make various minor technical corrections.
On September 1, 2021, City Council designated Councilmember Jenny McAdams as delegate to represent the City at the General Assembly.  Council is encouraged to consider the proposed bylaws amendments prior to the vote.  
  1. Take no action.
  2. Provide alternate direction. 
There is no fiscal impact.  
GOAL ALIGNMENT: Not Applicable.
