The National League of Cities’ Local Indigenous Leaders (LIL) will host a meeting this summer to foster a discussion on Indigenous issues in municipalities and strategic planning to continue the new constituency groups’ growth. The meeting will take place in Rancho Cordova, California – a first-tier suburb of Sacramento – in conjunction with the Hispanic Elected Local Officials event and NLC’s Summer Board and Leadership Meeting.

LIL serves as a network for members to make meaningful connections with fellow Indigenous local officials, discuss issues facing Indigenous and Tribal communities, and develop leadership experience. As the group continues to address current issues facing Indigenous and Tribal communities, this meeting will be an excellent opportunity for attendees to:  

  • Connect with peers from across the country, including Indigenous local officials and municipal staff.
  • Hear from thought leaders in the state on relevant issues.
  • Plan for the future of the group to ensure member growth and uplifting resources to the rest of NLC.

What to Expect

Join us on June 10 for a welcoming reception in conjunction with NLC HELO (Hispanic Elected Local Officials) and for a half-day meeting on Tuesday, June 11.

Members and prospective members of NLC’s newest Constituency Group, Local Indigenous Leaders (LIL), will gather to discuss membership growth and outreach and to focus on the group’s top policy priority for 2024: To amplify, educate, and advocate on issues related to Murdered and Missing Indigenous Persons.
