    Board of Directors and Advisory Council

    NLC is governed by a Board of Directors and an Advisory Council. The Board of Directors includes three officers, all past presidents still in government service, and 40 members. After completion of their two-year terms, members of the Board of Directors still in government service become members of the Advisory Council and may serve as long as they are in government service.

    Committees, Councils, Networks and Constituency Groups

    NLC offers a variety of committees, councils and networks where its members can help shape national municipal policy, explore city challenges and network with peers. NLC also works with five constituency groups which reflect the diverse interests and backgrounds of NLC membership.


    NLC membership includes municipalities and State Municipal Leagues, corporate partners and associate members from across the country. When a city or town joins NLC, its elected officials and staff participate in NLC's programs, activities and governance. Download Membership brochure.
