The Large Cities Council is comprised of almost 50 representatives from member cities with populations of 200,000 or more, or the largest city in a state. Members convene to network and share ideas and solutions to challenges affecting large cities.
The Large Cities Council was established in 2002 to provide an opportunity for networking and the exchange of ideas among elected and appointed officials from urban centers. Members of the Council are active participants in NLC's advocacy efforts and ensure that the needs of large urban centers are reflected in NLC's National Municipal Policy.
The Large Cities Council meets twice annually--once at the Congressional City Conference held in Washington, DC each March, and once at the Congress of Cities & Exposition each fall. Meetings are open to any interested conference attendee.
Membership is open to any local elected official representing a member city with population of 200,000 or greater or the largest city in a state. If you are interested in joining the Large Cities Council, please email John Pionke for more information.
