Councilmember Katie Abbott was appointed to the National League of Cities’ (NLC) Council on Youth, Education, and Families. She also serves on the 2024 NLC’s Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Federal Advocacy Committee, and the 2024 NLC’s Small Cities Council. 

“I am thrilled to be appointed to multiple committees within the National League of Cities. Not only does it expand my knowledge of these very important topics, but also allows me to collaborate and learn from other elected officials across the country."

As a member of NLC’s Council on Youth, Education, and Families Councilmember Abbott will play a key role among a diverse group of local leaders to encourage collaboration, networking and the development of resources and programs beneficial to communities that share demographics, size or location that can be replicated across the country.

“Our member councils play an integral role in NLC’s work, bringing local leaders together to share ideas and inform NLC policy about the issues and challenges facing every kind of community in America,” said NLC President Mayor-Elect David Sander of Rancho Cordova, CA. “I’m excited to have Councilmember Abbott serve on NLC's Council on Youth, Education, and Families. The council will ensure that all of our cities, towns and villages have access to ideas and resources they can use to thrive.”
