When he attends the NLC’s Congress of Cities this week in Austin, Texas, Alderman Joe Davis, Sr. will serve on two new National League of Cities committees.

Alderman Davis has been appointed to the NLC’s Nominating Committee, which selects national officers, appoints members of the organization’s board of directors and chooses committee chairs, and the Resolutions Committee, which steers NLC policy and provides guidance to cities across the United States.

“It’s an honor to represent the City of Milwaukee and its interests on these two important committees within the National League of Cities,” Alderman Davis said. “These bodies are tasked with the responsibility of driving NLC’s policy and its future, and I am looking forward to working with my new colleagues.”

Alderman Davis also currently serves as a member of the NLC Board of Directors, Board of Directors Liaison to the Large Cities Council and a member of the National Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials Board of Directors.

Getting underway this week in Austin, the NLC Congress of Cities is the nation’s largest educational event for city officials, featuring innovative sessions, mobile workshops, keynote addresses, skill-building seminars and opportunities to meet and network with other leaders from throughout the country. This year’s theme, The Future of Cities, is intended to showcase the innovative ways cities are driving change and help municipal leaders prepare for their communities’ future.

A longtime proponent of technology and innovation as economic drivers, Alderman Davis will participate in a scheduled tour of the University of Texas at Austin Advanced Computer Center and Visualization Laboratory during the conference.
