Join the Collective Action Workgroup!
With today’s complex social and economic issues, individual units of government can no longer solve these problems by working alone. A collective voice and action is needed. The Ramsey County League of Local Governments was established to foster coordination and collaboration, and it’s time to put that mission into practice!
A Collective Action Workgroup has formed and we need your community or agency at the table. Any elected official or staff member of a member organization is invited to join.
Contact Scott Arcand, RCLLG Vice President, at RCLLG@fusionlp.org for more information or to join!
We’re looking for additional RCLLG members to participate in subcommittees working on (1) Member Engagement and Communication, (2) Programs and Events, and (3) Collective Work. Contact RCLLG if you have ideas or experience that you can offer to one of these groups!
Congratulations, 2021 Executive Committee!
Thank you to our 2020 Vice President, Lisa Laliberte and Treasurer, Marre Jo Sager, for their time and dedication over the past year! RCLLG was lucky to have you!
