About NLC Constituency Groups

Constituency Groups are caucuses within the National League of Cities, our constituency groups are networks that give local elected officials a space to express themselves and advocate for the needs of their community. They reflect the diverse interests and backgrounds of NLC’s membership and contribute to NLC’s leadership development, policy formulation, advocacy, and program activities.
