Celebrate Small Cities Month!

Small Cities Month
Small Cities Month

At NLC, we know small cities can have a big impact. That's why we host Small Cities Month annually, celebrating the achievements and innovations of our small city members. Each day throughout June, we're highlighting examples of what makes our small cities proud. Like us on Facebook to follow and share in your colleagues' stories of tight-knit communites, creative solutions and dedicated civic pride or share your story on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #SmallCitiesMonth.


Three ways to bring your small city leadership to the national level:
  1. Join one of NLC’s seven Federal Advocacy Committees to shape national policy that will benefit cities of all sizes. From transportation and infrastructure to municipal finance and economic development, the nation needs small city input.
  2. Connect with other small city leaders by joining the Small Cities Council. Share best-practices with colleagues who can give you real time advice and ecouragement. 
  3. Have a unique story? Share it. NLC's Citiesspeak blog shares trends in city leadership, up-to-date best-practices and stories of innovation. If your city, town or village is pushing the envelope, we want to hear about it. Contact stjean@nlc.org to find out more.
