APAMO Constituency Group

One of NLC’s six constituency groups, Asian Pacific American Municipal Officials (APAMO) brings together Asian Pacific American municipal leaders to network and share best practices.  

Established within NLC in 1985, Asian Pacific American Municipal Officials (APAMO) is a caucus within NLC that provides municipal officials who identify and ally with the Asian Pacific American to connect with their colleagues in a forum to share ideas and develop leadership experience. 

APAMO serves as a vehicle for members to discuss problems and explore solutions, debate policy issues and contribute to the success of American cities and towns. 

APAMO Membership Details

APAMO welcomes new members at any time throughout the year. The Board of Directors is elected every two years at NLC’s City Summit by the group’s membership. The group typically meets in person at the Congressional City Conference and City Summit. Additionally, APAMO hosts a variety of webinars and programs throughout the year. Some events, like dinners and receptions, require a nominal activity participation fee.  

There is no extra cost for NLC members to join APAMO; non-members pay a $75 supporting member fee per year.
