Collaboration with Other Organizations

NLC should start:

  • Listening to and partnering with high-functioning outside groups to get ahead of issues critical to cities (e.g., sustainable cities)
  • Working with other municipally-based organizations (fire chiefs, police chiefs, clerks/treasurers, etc.)
  • Reaching out to cross-cultural national organizations that reflect the diversity of the U.S.
  • Building stronger connections to city lobbyists and Big 7, with all staff fully aware of these partnerships
