Join us for the Women in Municipal Government (WIMG) Summer Conference, August 10-12, 2022, in Sacramento, CA to connect with fellow women local leaders and build on your skills to bring back to your community.

After two years of connecting virtually, we are excited for WIMG to come together in Sacramento, California, to learn about local policy issues, discuss federal advocacy concerns, and build a stronger network.

Established in 1974, the WIMG constituency group was formed to serve as a forum for communication and networking among women local elected officials and their colleagues within the National League of Cities (NLC).

During the conference you will:

  • Enhance your network with local female leaders from across the country.
  • Learn about timely issues in special seminars that help to expand your skill sets.
  • Find solutions to challenging problems in your hometown.
