Women in Municipal Government (WIMG)

Women in Municipal Government (WIMG) constituency group was formed in 1974 to serve as a forum for communication and networking among women local elected officials and their colleagues within the National League of Cities (NLC). It strives to raise awareness about issues of concern to women, and it encourages women to seek public office in their communities.

Over the years, WIMG has worked to ensure that women hold leadership positions within NLC and serve on its Board of Directors and other special leadership groups. It has successfully forged a prominent role for women in the development of NLC's National Municipal Policy and its agenda for the nation's cities and towns. WIMG has a Board of Directors as well as an Advisory Council, which consists of its past presidents who remain in elected or appointed municipal office.
