The CLC plays an integral role in assisting with ACCG's advocacy efforts during the legislative session.

County chairs are asked to officially designate a CLC by passing a resolution at a commission meeting. You may contact ACCG Legislative Policy Coordinator Ines Owens at (404) 522-5022 to obtain a copy of the draft resolution.
