From EAC Recommendation to Ordinance Adoption: Productively Attaining Official Action by Local Government

Ever wonder how those recommendations get turned into a municipal ordinance? Learn about the process and how your work on a volunteer board can be more effective and productive in turning recommendations into official action.
