The leagues provide a vital network for cities and towns within each state. To facilitate collaboration, the leagues have created peer networks focused on providing the best possible services for their members.
The National League of Cities Risk Information Sharing Consortium (NLC-RISC) is a membership association of state municipal league intergovernmental risk pools. NLC-RISC facilitates information sharing among pools, provides trustee and staff training, as well as developing programs and information designed to support pools in their operations and member service delivery.
State municipal leagues occupy a special position within the National League of Cities. They were the founding members of NLC and they continue to play an important role at NLC, guiding the organization's priorities and serving as an important link to cities in their state.
The Public Finance Consortium (NLC-PFC) is a joint venture between NLC and state leagues. Its membership is composed of representatives of state league sponsored or endorsed bond pooling programs, but membership is also open to any state league interested in public finance.
