Bridging the cultural and generational gap in municipalities

The Young Municipal Leaders (YML) group is dedicated to helping municipal leaders and staff tackle the leadership challenges of today and tomorrow. YML is open to elected officials and city staff 18-40 years old, YML recognizes that the next generation of leaders will face challenges unique to them and their peers such as:  

  • Climate change 
  • Cyber security 
  • Racial equity 
  • Housing and homelessness 

By building an engaged community, we can develop solutions from city leader to city leader that span the country and improve residents’ way of life. YML creates a forum to share best practices and also brings together city leaders past and present to bridge the cultural and generational gap in municipalities.
