NYCOM Policy Committees

In an effort to facilitate legislative advocacy and member engagement, NYCOM has established policy committees in four areas: Community Revitalization, Energy and Environment, Labor Relations, and Municipal Finance. These policy committees provide general guidance and policy recommendations to the NYCOM Executive Committee and staff, develop positions on various pieces of legislation, and consider new legislative proposals that will benefit cities and villages.
