2) Offer to Speak or Suggest a Topic
Maybe you are not in a position to put together a 3 - 4 speaker program, but you have a great topic idea or would like to present on a program. Let us know. If we like your idea we can help you put together a panel. Even if it is just you, our committees are always looking for speakers at telephonic committee meetings to update us on areas of interest. Submit your idea.
We are always looking for short articles for the State and Local Government Law News and the eNews; law review submissions for our esteemed law review, The Urban Lawyer; and books and book ideas for our publishing arm. Want to be published? If you have a fully formed book idea, please complete our book proposal form. If you have a short article, law review, or want to discuss these or posible book ideas, let us know what you have.
4) Join a Committee
Want to become more active but do not know where to start? Join one of our 16 committees, the lifeblood of the Section and a great way to become more active. Sign up for alerts and meeting notices, and if you want to find out how to become more active in a committee, reach out to the chairs.
5) Come to Our Conferences
We have great programs coming up in 2019. Make sure to join us to keep up on the latest in state & local goverment law. Visit our website often as meeting details develop. We will hold a seat for you!
